I need some opinions. 660ti SC vs. 680 SC sig 2

I purchased EVGA's 660ti SC graphics card and I managed to have some extra cash. Seeing as I can't just return this card to the computer shop and have to go through EVGA for anything now that I've purchased it, I went online and found their step up program.

So my main concern is whether or not I should go for it? Should I step up to the GTX 680 superclocked signature 2 model? Should I wait?

What I'm after: GTX 680 SC Sig 2

What I have: GTX 660 ti

Please don't post stuff like "get the 680" and other pointless posts. I would like to have opinions and information to back up why you would choose one or the other.

Thanks!

Well if i do it really would depend on how much extra is it going to cost if the answer is $150 i would not bother with doing it.

Yea, something like that. From what I understand, it would cost the difference of the two cards, plus shipping my card there, and you have to purchase an extended warranty for $20 just to qualify for the step up program. I compared the specs and , to me, the 680 didn't really seem that better off than the current 660ti that I own. Of course, too, I'm not really all that familiar with computer parts, yet.

So, I'm going to start considering holding onto this one for a while and wait for the 700? series to come out.

Another thought: Is there any other EVGA GPU that would be worth bumping up to from the 660ti SC model?
