If you're going to upgrade to ivy get the i5 3570k and a Z77 motherboard (the AS Rock Extreme4 is cheap and decent). As others have said, a 7950 is a much better deal than a 660ti for just a little bit more. Or, you could also get a 7870 for a little bit less (they go for around $250 in Canada). A 670 is also a good choice if you want PhysX and Adaptive Vsync, and they're also a little bit faster than a 7950 at stock.

You'll probably be happy with any of the cards listed above. If I were you I'd just get the cheapest 7950/670 you can find as I think they're really pretty equal.thumb.gif
