As of April my 4870 X2 went to legacy support, and now a few months later it seems to now be having issues. So, it looks like I am in need of a new videocard, I, like a lot of other people am interested in the 7990, but it appears to be major vapourware, so my question is this:

What dual-GPU video card should I get, it can be from either NVIDIA or AMD?

Neither. Unless you want to run EyeFinity or 3D Surround Vision with 30" monitors, an ultra highend GPU is kind of pointless. Just get a single GTX 680 or HD 7970, it'll do just fine.

Seeing as how I've got a high-end computer, granted it's not a modern high-end computer, but one from late 2008 that I built myself, it requires a high-end videocard.

High-end for 2008. That's considered midrange at best in 2012. So no, it doesn't require a high-end video card, and I wouldn't be surprised if a GTX 690 or HD7990 would be bottlenecked.
