Always depends on your budget, but sometimes spending a little extra for the extra bang is worth it, after all, in most cases its an investment, not a cost and is easily recovered through time savings etc.

Would suggest have a look at the GTX670 (preferably the overclocked factory version), priced slightly more than the 660 and a bit faster, but seems to be close in performance to the 680 but much more affordable (at least down here).  Long period rendering for a factory based overclock should be fine, just not recommended to up the clock on standard versions.
