I say wait for 790 or 880 however what you might wanna do is sell the 680 now buy a 780 and buy a second one later on or if you want to triple sli with a 790.
The only advantage a 4gb card has over a 2gb card is if you are actually hitting the vram ceiling on 2gb cards, you may end up with severe stuttering and crashing to desktop. A 4gb card will prevent this problem, but DO NOT expect any performance gains at all.

Here is my suggestion...since you have an mITX board right now you cannot do SLI which means you need to have a new board, a new case if you don't already have one, and on top of that a second gpu. Don't waste your time upgrading basically most of your rig just to get a second old card, wait it out until you can upgrade all at once when the 800 series drop. By then they should hopefully be using a larger bandwidth and will support HDMI 2.0 along with being able to support a UHD/4K resolution pretty easy.
