Would it be worth it to sell my 560 ti and get a 660 ti or wait until the 700 series to upgrade?

For reference I play at 1080p and usually play most new releases.

I would say yes, but its your money. The gtx660 is faster than the GTX580. I have owned both 560/580 and the GTX580 played a lot smoother than the number suggested. I think you would be happy with the upgrade.

If you wait till Jan 2013 when the GTX 780 based on the Big Kepler GK110 chip launches, the GTX 680 will take the mid range price point of USD 300 as the new GTX 760 Ti. I definitely would say its worth the wait. Games like Crysis 3 and Metro Last Light coming out in 2013 need all the GPU power you need. the true generational leap of close to 80 - 100% from GTX 560 Ti can be had from going for a GTX 760 Ti aka GTX 680 .

I say wait. 660Ti is being bashed right now as too expensive for performance.

I say go for it. if you always wait you'll never get to buy anything. upgrade your hardware then enjoy. if you feel you're lacking performance again then go SLI or get a newer card

Get one of the 320 dollar 7950s or step up to a gtx670/7970. 660ti just chokes way too hard in certain situations. It's extremely fast in some benches but in my estimation it's an 'unbalanced' card.

Get a 7950 give it a 50% overclock and be happy with the extra VRAM imo.
