Upgrading GTX560Ti SO

Hi Guys,
First time poster so bear with me.

I built my rig about 3 years ago and i am looking to upgrade my GPU....i can still run all my games at high resolution etc with decent frame rates but i have some spare cash and i'd like to go for it.

Current rig:
CPU: i5 2500K ( Using Arctic Cooling Freezer to cool )
MOBO: Asus P8Z68 V-PRO
RAM: 8GB Corsair MK3 1600Mhz
GPU: Gyigabyte GTX560Ti Super Clocked edition
PSU: Cooler Master GX750W
CASE: NZXT Lexa S ( 1 x front fan, 1 x side fan, 1 x top fan, 1 x rear fan )
Also i might add that i have not overclocked anything ( yet )

I was hoping to upgrade to either a GTX 770 series or R9 280X, however i am not 100% sure if my current build would be able to utilize the full potential of the new GPU or how dramatic a difference in performance i would achieve ( think mobo is PCI 2.0 ).
Is this case big enough top take one of these cards?

Can someone tell me if it is worth upgrading just now or should i wait ?

Like i said i can run all my games i have incl BF4 at decent frame rates.....

Thanks guys ;)

You'll be fine with a 770 or even a 290/x. The 2500 isn't much slower then the 4670.
