Well it depends if you have a good psu or not
GeForce GTX 680 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 550 Watt power supply unit.
GeForce GTX 680 SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 750 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

If you are going to overclock GPU or processor, then we do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina. http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_gtx_680_re...

As bigcyco1 said, 750 is minimum, if you have a good power supply you'd be okay, but you should probably get something a bit powerful.

Examples:

also would overheating be a problem? if i do add the 2nd card, there would only be about 1/4 of an inch between one another. right now my single card peaks at 60 degree C

mmm antecs are a mixed bag. depends on which PSU as they re-badge PSU's from other manufacturers. that said the one you have in particular seems to be fairly decent one. it should work but i wouldn't rule out a higher wattage one if you can swing it in your budget. if you can't i would not worry to much.

It will most likely heat up a few C more, but it shouldn't be an issue.

If you get the opportunity invest in something with higher watts later.

It should be o.k. i have two 670's and they run about 65C during gaming.
