Get a 670 or a 680 or if you want to go AMD then keep one of those 260s to do the hybrid Physx and drop a 7950/7970 in.

I mean what is your budget? Because I could say throw a 690 in there it would def be a great upgrade from 2 260s but seriously what is your budget.

Also what are your computer specs what res is your monitor and do you plan on upgrading your monitor in the near future?

If you're not planning on upgrading that monitor, something along the lines of a GTX 660-660ti / Radeon 7850-7950 should be enough.

If you are not going to upgrade the monitor then I agree with this. The resolution on that monitor is too low to make use of a 670/680. If you want to go AMD then grab a 7850/7870
