GPU is much easier to upgrade than the CPU because to upgrade the CPU, you have to upgrade the CPU and motherboard. I would go for a 7770 if that was the price to get intel over AMD.

Look at performance of these video cards, as they are the best determinant of how well your system will perform. I own the MSI Twin Frozr 560 Ti, and it's good enough for my budget, which was similar to yours.

If you're thinking about the new Nvidia (Kepler) or AMD cards, then you'll have to read reviews that compares new cards to the prior generation ones.

How about a GTX 480 for like $30 more (much better performance)? Because your PSU is overkill right now for a single 560.

The GTX 480 matches the 580 with small overclocks as it scales very well. They're still largely in stock.

Yes. A good 650w will be able to run 560's SLI. However make sure your motherboard supports (x8,x8) SLI.
