I can get a Peavey 6505 212 for 600 (new, yes new), or wait and get the 6505+ 112 for 680 (when it comes out).

the specs are identical besides the 212 obviously having an extra speaker (same speakers in both however). The 6505+ looks a little bit more versatile however, having separate EQ's on both lead an rhythm channels and is switchable to 4Ω as well as 8 and 16 (212 is only 8 and 16Ω

the extra speaker would add more presence (aural depth, if that makes sense) would it not? and i might not need different EQ's for both overdriven and clean.

What would be a better deal?

generally 2 x12 have a little bit more depth than a 1x12 and can project the sound in more ways than a 1x12.

The 6505+ looks like a better amp . you could always add an extension cab later if you are dissatisfied with a 1 x12.

I prefer the 212...
Sounds better with 2 speakers IMO.
