I have a home built gaming computer with a 560ti in it at the moment. I want to get a third monitor and a 560ti won't do it, so I wanted to get a stronger card. My motherboard own runs up to x2 pci, so I don't know if buying a 680 would be worth it since it's made to run x3, and buying a 590 would make more sense. I know both cards would handle what I want to do without a problem, but I'd rather buy a 680 due to cost and availability.

The 590 will outperform a 680 in gaming by about 15% or so. I would go with the 680 because it will be less expensive and you won't have to wait for SLI profiles like for the 590 and you can buy a 680 where as a 590 you'll probably have to buy a used one since newegg or tigerdirect don't carry 590's anymore.

here's a comparison
