i was wondering if it would be worth it to upgrade from an a10 5800k to a 560 ti boost or should i save up my money and buy something like a 760 or maybe another gpu thats not to expensive like under 250 dollars but i would rather spend a little over 150 dollars instead of 250

I'm assuming you mean the 650 ti boost...but it depend's on what's "worth it" to you, the 650 ti boost will be several orders of magnitude more powerful than the 7660D on your iGPU, about 4 times more in fact...so you decide if that's worth it. That card is designed to play modern games at 1920x1080 on high settings at around 50-60 fps.

Yes switching up to a 560ti boost would be a good upgrade, but you would be better off saving up a little bit more and get a nicer card.

Yeah i meant 650 ti boost also i saw this card and by worth it i meant worth it to buy a card at the lower end like $150 range or would it be better to just save up and buy a higher end $250 card

It depends on what resolution and settings you're going to play at...

Then a 650 ti boost would serve you well a 760 would bump to you ultra with more frames, but you probably wouldn't really see much difference...

Go for a 760 and bump up the eye candy, will also be a better card for more demanding games in the future.
