Hey,

Toms recently did another roundup that might help you out:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car...

For that resolution a gtx760 should be more than enough to max out most games, I have gtx670 (almost equivalent) and I game @ 1200p (1920x1200) without any issues so far. Even your current gtx560ti isn't bad, and if you are playing at 1080p you don't necessarily need an upgrade, unless you want to max out some settings. However if you are looking to upgrade at $250 the gtx760 is a nice bang for the buck.

Hope this helps!

The gtx 760 does almost better then a 670 and goes for 250$ I'd recommend the EVGA with ACX cooling, anything else then the stock cooler should be fine.

I was actually thinking of the gtx 670. But if that is overkill. I might just opt for the 760. Tho i do want to max some aaa games like bf3 and bioshock infinite. Would also want some future proofing for any upcoming aaa game.

Considering that the gtx760 and gtx670 are so close I would just go with the gtx760 as its $249 and at your resolution will perform great. My gtx670 (similar to gtx760) maxes Infinite, and I haven't tried BF3 but it can also run it maxed at that resolution (or so I hear). The gtx670 only slightly edges out the gtx760, but the gtx760 is of better value (and can be easily overclocked to match that performance), unless you find a gtx670 at $249.
