Would upgrading from a 6870 to a Gtx 680 be worth it?

Ignoring the obvious "Duh" Im considering buying a 680 Off of newegg, which after Rebate ends up being Less than $300, And if im correct the Gtx 770 is basically a re-badged 680 But would also be $330+.

So basically, Is the 680 the Best bang for my buck at under $300 and would obviously be faster than a 760, and is cheaper than a R9 280X.

Rest of my Specs are as follows: (May be a bit off, Currently away and dont completely remember my specs)
i5-3570k @ 4.3Ghz
16Gb DDR3 1600
Asrock Extreme4 mobo
Cant seem to remember my PSU but i believe its at least 650W

Yeah, it would be a huge upgrade. Go for it.

Or for a $5 difference i might as well get a Gtx 770, which on top of being Slightly faster would also net me Arkham origins, Which i was interested in anyway.

Now that i think about it, Im not entirely sure i want to spend almost $300 on a New GPU, When im planning on Picking up a PS4. I tend to spend more time on consoles than PC, Mainly because of friends and Playing with friends > Playing alone
