Definately grab yourself a 680 with that budget, get the latest and greatest and if you want to upgrade further you can add another one.
If you can grab an EVGA card, as they have good warranty options and customer service.
Keep looking I know the stocks are low, but some are popping up still but are going quick, just keep at it.

over the budget i think ill just wait for some 680s to come into stock though

I personally would wait for the 680! If you apply the 10% promo code then you would not be over budget!

Have a look at the evga website and see if you can purchase it directly from them, they even have a super clocked version.

I was referring to the 10% promo code on the GTX570!
Just wondering why ask the question if you are waiting for them to come in stock?

Yeah I thought so...no problem.
Hit up evga with an email about an ETA and see what they say.
