I spend only $300 for Mac Pro, RAM, SSD, CPUs, and USB Port so Im really happy about it. But I should have better graphic card cause I have dual 2k monitors.

GTX 1000 series would be the great choice but they are not supported yet. 700 series seem to require more power than 900, 1000 series and have only one DP 1.2. I need at least two.

Any recommendation?

AMD coupled with Eyefinity may be your only choice. There's a reason why Mac Pros have come with AMD cards for years; they offer more options than nVidia.

On the other hand, if you can get your hands on a DP 1.2 splitter, you could see if that works with your current card. It's a stretch, though.

GTX 680 and HD7950 used go for cheap and can be had for around 100 dollars if you look. both are easy to flash and you can save 200 dollars or more doing it yourself. if you need a newer card and money isn't an issue macvidcards,.

gtx 770 is the easiest beefcake nvidia card to run as it's ok on native drivers (and cheaper than the 680 on ebay )
the gtx9xx cards mostly work but require the nvidia display drivers to run, but there's some bugs that you will have if you run a gtx9xx card (you may see them or may not depending on apps you run)

from ATI if your on the new osx then the rx460 470 480 are options, http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/dual-rx-480s-in-mac-pro-5-1-running-macos-w-how-to.1984213/page-12#post-23705812
