He has a 6770 not a 6670. A 6770 is a bit slower than a gtx 460, so the 560 would be an improvement for sure, but if I was you I would go for a used 560Ti.

I know you got that upgrade itch, but I'm going to recommend you hold off if you want a real upgrade.

You have very few options, the 6770 isn't half bad a card at this point in time.

I'd honestly scrap this upgrade and save up a little more to get a better card. It will last you longer and you'll be happier in the end. You might even be able to hold off until the midrange 600 series comes out, pick up a used 560ti or 570 even for super cheap.

Agree with Lark.. your budget is going to make an upgrade not really worth it.

Save for a bit longer and try find someone to sell your card to when you do have some more funds (and the mid range 660 and 650 cards are released) and then make a bigger jump
