Two 670s plus a 570, maybe for PhysX calculation as a dedicated PPU for the two 670s, is better than two 680s.

That's retail price, not value. The two 670s and the 570 are faster than two 680s despite being about the same price, so they are better regardless of retail pricing.

If you're too indecisive, you could flip a coin over it, heads make the trade and tails keep your cards :)

2x670 in SLI are similkar to 2x680. Assuming you play at 1080p.

I wouldnt do the swap.



VS



they are similar @ 1080p resolution. At this resolution youy are basically CPU bound.

I would sell the 570 and keep the cash. From your rig, i cant see anything you can upgrade that wouldnt be a sidegrade. nice rig, btw.
