Nvidia 675MX or 680 MX for FCP X on iMac?

On a new iMac 27" what difference will the nvidia 680mx make over the 675mx, particularly for Final Cut Pro X?

I am looking to purchase a new 27” iMac, a key use of which will be editing a significant amount of home movies – well over 100 hours. I will be using Final Cut Pro X. I expect that I will expand into more advanced movie editing after I complete this task.

I will be getting the i7 3.4ghz processor and the Fusion Drive on a 27" iMac. It will have 24GB of RAM, the 8GB it comes with and 16GB I will add.

I will also be managing a fairly large (200GB) Aperture library, but my editing needs are nowhere near professional.

I will be doing a lot of video conversion using Handbrake, but I believe I have that covered with the processor upgrade.

I am not a gamer, preferring to leave that to my sons. (I couldn’t hope to compete).

{Edit: I will also be moving into more 3D modelling and from reading some posts I think that may push more towards the 680}
