I presently have a GTX 285 on a Core 2 QUAD (Q9550@3GHZ) system, with 4GB of DDR2 (800MHZ)memory, on XP. Would it be worth me upgrading the GPU to a GTX560ti, and selling my 285 on ebay?

How does a GTX285 compare to a GTX285 ?

In every way that upgrade makes sense:

Check out the comparisons. Sometimes the increase in performance is substantial, other times minute. But in every case (even power consumption and noise level) going to the 560 makes sense.

I could not find direct comparison between them but GTX 560 TI is on average 5-10% faster than the GTX470 http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTX_470... so it would be about 25+% increase + newer tech. Whether it is worth it you will have to answer it yourself!
