Keep the 590. It's a better GPU.

you can probably even do 3 way sli with the power supply. gtx 590 is usally better but it will eat up more power. the 680 is much cooler and power efficent

It's a great GPU... I'm surprised you were able to afford it! (Nothing personal, it's just that it's very high-end).
