Upgrading 5770: NVidia or Radeon?

I'm thinking of upgrading my Radeon 5770 to something more current. I play games like Diablo 3 and Guild Wars 2. I've read all the hype about the NVidia 660, but the 7850 or 7870 seems like a slightly better deal.

Here's my current rig:

Phenom II X4 955
Asus M4A88TD-V motherboard
8GB G.SKILL DDR3 1600 RAM

Any suggestions? And will an upgrade provide a noticeable improvement?

Thanks for any advice.

    How many fps are you getting? if the performance is good there's no need to upgrade yet.
  2. I would get the GTX 660.
