I'm looking to upgrade from the NVIDIA GTX 560Ti card I have now.
Any recommendations in the $300-500 price range?

Assuming you're monitor is 1080p... GTX 770 or GTX 780. This will be an excellent upgrade. You'll be able to run with full details and AA for any game with smooth video.

Is it worth the extra 2 bills to go with the 780 over the 770?

Actually the GTX 770 is entirely in your price range. That's definitely the way to go. Get one of the super or overclocked editions and it will perform like a 780. This EVGA GTX 770 4GB Superclocked edition with the ACX cooler would be a great choice.

@ AxmanNJ: How about you tell us the rest of the system specs before we spend your money? ;) 
Please include the power supply details and monitor resolution.

No probs there, mate!
Unless you plan on dual monitors the GTX770 would be my choice, consider the 780 only if you're going to upgrade the display.
The 'Egg have a few 'see price in cart' offers that come in a little under $400 and I like the feedback of the Zotac cards BTW.
You might want to consider entering the dark realm of overclocking, current games are FINALLY using quads properly but a little extra speed will not go amiss.

Quick update. I purchased the ASUS GTX770-DC2OC-2GD5 GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card and I'm very pleased with it. Runs fast and quiet.

One heads up though, this card is HUGE. I have a full sized case and I still needed to move some cables around. Bottom line for the price I highly recommend it.

Thanks again to everyone for your help and input.
