2. Computer

Neither computer can do Crossfire if they have a 680. Crossfire is for AMD, SLI is for Nvidia.
Yes both computers can do SLI granted they had a second 680.

Computer 1 has my choice as well.

3 reasons, the 3770 is a newer arch and faster than the 3820, the PSU is better on the first one, and no point in wasting money in the X79 platform.
