depends on how much extra perf from the uprade you want. a HD 7870 is on par with GTX 580 and will be 40 - 50% faster than GTX 560. i suggest you spend more and go for a MSI GTX 660 Ti PE for AUD 279 or Gigabyte GTX 760 OC for AUD 329 or Sapphire HD 7950 for AUD 329. at average overclocks of 1100 - 1150 mhz HD 7950 will pretty much double the perf of the GTX 560.
