tell me in all honesty as the old pc im on uses
a gforce 8400gs from 2007 on a single core amd 2.2

moving upto a quad 965
would i notice difference between 560/570
and is the price jump from aprox 140/180 pounds GBP
worth the jump upto 240/260 pounds GBP for a 570

your old PC is ancient so anything modern would be a noticeable difference. it really depends on your monitor resolution. i'm guessing your 23" is 1080p so yes you would notice the difference between a GTX 560ti and 570 if you want to run games max. if you are willing to adjust some settings to high from very high, the GTX560 / AMD 6870 is fine.

but ude go the extra mile for 570 right ?

if the extra cost won't affect you then the GTX570 would give the best performance.
