Default unlocked hd 6950 2gb upgrading to what? or nah?

i try to figure out if its worth to upgrade my hd6950 with unlocked mods cfx and waterblock...

i know its not fun to research or search the forum... i want to know the real experience... not number... nobody answers if its actually greatly experience improving over old hd6950

i look at this GTX 660 Ti Roundup (ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte, Galaxy, MSI)

it looks like OCed gtx 660 ti is almost close equal to stock hd 7970 and 100cdn cheaper than hd 7970's 400cdn before taxes...

i also look at old hd7850 (or whatever)... only 20% or 5 fps improved over stock hd6950... is that 5 fps big deal? so if i upgrade to gtx 660 ti and oc it.. then probably 40% or 10 fps improved over hd 6950... it looks not bad... really benefit? maybe...

i really want to know if its great gaming experience improved over hd6950 from gtx660ti...

i hope to keep playing sc2, halo2 and wot at 1080res and ultra high mode... thats all i care about...

ps. someday i want to play mass effect, fallout 3 lv or whatever if i have time... damn school and job stuff...
