I have a GTX 550 Ti at the moment and i have the opportunity to upgrade to a XFX 6870, is it worth the upgrade? If yes, how much of an increase in performance will I be expecting?

i think the 6870 is in between the 550 ti and the 560 ti so not that much performance increase

So are we talking about maybe a 20% increase in performance?

Depends on how much money it would cost you to upgrade. $20-40 would be worth it in my opinion, any more and it isn't (even $40 may be pushing it).

Dont get the xfx one, get the sapphire one, xfx has some heat issues.
