I've been wanting to upgrade my gpu GTX 560 1GB non-ti but wasn't sure if I should just get another on sli. Is there any need for me to switch to another like for future games or should i go with sli?

It depends on your budget, if you can find a cheap 560, it will boost the performance.
But if you can afford a mid end card like the 660ti or a high end card like 670 gtx, it will be better.

For that price only a 660 gtx, it might not be worth it, but still it's a decent upgrade from a 560 gtx.

It is a mid(mid-high) end card, the high end ones are the 670 and 680 gtx.

The 7950 is more than 250$, it's better than the 660 gtx non ti, it's about the same performance as the 660 ti, if you can afford a 7950, why not the 660 ti ?
Since you had a previous nvidia card, you might want the 660 ti.
But if you want the 7950, by all means, it has two free games, if it's why you're looking it for, the two games being crysis 3 and bioshock infinite.

what resolution are you gaming at?

and what games?

btw, you might as well spend $20 more and get two free games as said before . .

MSI R7950 Twin Frozr 3GD5/OC $319.99
$304.99 after $15.00 rebate card

or get a still decent 7950 for the same price as the Ebay deal with the games . .
MSI R7950-2PMD3GD5 Radeon HD 7950 $299.99

though the TF would be better . .

1366×768 for games like sim city (new) and other upcoming games Im not to intense on my gaming just want the job done. I will get the twin frozr model w/ games since i really trust msi and my 560 is a twin frozr as well. One more thing Is a 650watt psu enough for this?

Yes, a decent psu with 650W is more than enough for it.
But if the maximum resolution of your monitor is just 1366×768, it's an overkill, in my opinion the 560 is really capable at that resolution, it can play any game at high settings at 720p.
And for sim city it will do.
But it's your money.

a decent 550 watt PSU will run any single graphic card, so unless that 650 reads diablotech on the side, you're okay.

if you feel that your 560 is or will be lacking in gaming, at your resolution either of these twin frozrs will be fine:

MSI R7870 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC $259.99
Free Bioshock&Tomb Raider game coupon w/ purchase, limited offer

or

MSI N660 TF 2GD5/OC $239.99
$229.99 after $10.00 rebate card

if you are going to upgrade to a 1080 monitor, they'll is be ok but then maybe look at a 7950 . . .

edit: i just saw that last post . .ok a 7950 is a reasonable choice . .

Well if it can go to 1080p, then get the 7950, it comes with the two games.
You might also take a look on this card : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It's the 7870 tahiti le, which is basically a 7950 under the hood.
