I would grab a cheap GTX 580 and skip the 680. You can grab one for like $250 nowadays. VRAM might be lacking in some games on a 1440p, but you don't need max AAs do you?
So far with my GTX 590 the only issue with AA i ran into is sleeping dogs, but then again they dont have optimized drivers yet for this game. other than that i maxed out every game i thrown at it. haven't reloaded BF3, but Crysis 2 ran flawlessly with dx11 and text pack.
SLI 580 > GTX 590, so if i don't have issues so far, i am sure that a cheaper alternative before 780 comes out.
