GTX 680 worthwhile?

Mac Pro - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
May be replacing my AMD HD 7970 in the near future. Thought about going to the old tried & true 680 because of ease ( or some say) to flash for boot screen. I can get the Nvidia gtx 680, 2G (one with the one fan), for $75 from a friend. Is it worth it to do it ( is the card worth it in terms of age) considering all the new cards of today. Most of the AMD R9 series seem to be a rebadge of the 7000 series, give or take specs but some do require less power. Now back to the 680. My research into all this says the 4G is good for multiple monitors. 2G is fine for 1080p, which is basically what I do. Have no intention of going to multiple monitors or in that direction. I still have my original mac 5770 & 3 GT120s. Now if I keep the 7970 for a while longer, I have just that card in my mac, can I also keep the 5770 or gt120 in it also or would draw too much power? Any info would be greatly appreciative.

Thanks
