I have a 550ti that runs most of my games on high detail but not at full 1080 would i be able to accomplish that with the gtx 560? and would it be worth money to upgrade this is the one im specifically looking at.

Wait for a Kepler card at around the same price so you can actually benefit from upgrading.

I'll agree with what nbelote said, probally your best bet is to wait, 550 to 560 isn't worth the small upgrade

I have that same card and have also been contemplating an upgrade. But I think I will wait for a Kepler card.

I wouldn't say expensive side of the spectrum, its something that will come out and replace the 550 & the 560's

It's not a side of the spectrum, it's the next spectrum. Fermi is replaced by Kepler, so they'll have cheap/mainstream, value, and performance models as well.

Agreed

Dell is already slapping them into their PC's and I did not see the clock rate increases as you stated.

worth the purchase, not the upgrade! I would wait for Kepler to upgrade... something like GTX660 or something like that... probably next month or so!
