Get a 680, it will problably be better in games, quiter and it won't need as much power!:p

GTX 560 ti should be sufficient for now. Why not wait a littlle and see what comes on the market soon?

If you really want to upgrade now, then go for Radeon 7970 or GTX 670, those are the high-end Cards with best bang for the buck at the moment.

Yeah, that's also my worry. I call it the "apple effect"; every time I gather enough money to buy something nice and shiny, something even nicer and shiner comes out as the same price as whatever I just purchased. With my luck, I'll buy a 680, then some industrial break through will happen and direct x 999999 will be released.

I know how you feel man! That is why I always buy hardware when it drops. I got the GTX 660 at the same week it got launched. Last time I bought a Radeon 6770 and were so happy with it, 1 month later. BAM 7770! :(

Unless you plan your CPU a little, I would not recommend much more GPU than what you have.
