That really depends on a lot of things. Obviously some of those options will cost more than others. NEED MORE INFO! biggrin.gif

Imo, if you have to upgrade, I would get either a 7970 or a gtx 680 just because they aren't old tech. The gtx 590 may slightly outperform both of them, but SLI has micro stutter and other issues, so I also wouldn't sli your current gtx 570.

Upgrading to a 580 seems pointless to me because you would probably be spending about $100+ for about 10% increased performance.

But I would honestly wait until the game comes out and see if you really need to upgrade, and if you don't then get a nice ssd.

Buy nothing. Diablo III is a Blizzard game, which generally means it can be run on a napkin with a GPU drawn on it and a 560ti will max every setting. With a 570, I doubt there's anything you won't be able to do.

SSD wasn't a bad idea though.

I advise you to learn the difference between "advise" and "advice"
