  1. Best answer
    Get the 680...if you ever need more in the future and you have enough saved up, you can also get another 680 and you will never need GPUs again for many years
  2. ^+1 exactly my philosophy!
    Get as much as you can in a single card because you can always add another and two of the better card will always be better two of the lesser card. Besides, a single 680 is only around a 5-10% less performance of two 560 Tis.

    Comparing available info, the performance difference depends on the game and resolution.

    Get GTX 680 or HD7970 and you can add another some day later.
