I've not found a direct comparison but you could jump between these two reviews and it will give you all the information you need.

GTX 680:

I've had a quick scan over the results and it seems they trade blows but more often than not the 680 comes out on top. If I was you I would be selling that 560 and getting a 680. Single card over SLI any day.

I have 560Ti's in SLi and while it is nice in theory and benchmarking, the game developers have to develop drivers for whatever game it is you're trying to play. Nvidia no doubt has pretty good driver support, but if going for a 680 is a viable option for you, I would do that. I'm not complaining about my SLi setup, i just feel like crossfire and sli are aiming at FPS games which I don't really play. I play mmo's mainly and they don't have the strongest support for dual gpu set ups.

Hopefully the people at Nvidia and AMD will realize a lot more people use dual video card set ups and step up their game, but as of right now, a single gpu is a lot less headache. I can't speak for the gtx 680 though seeing as how it's a new card and all new cards have driver issues in the beginning.
