Will I notice a large difference when I throw in my new video card?

Heya, I currently have an EVGA GTX 560 (not ti model), unfortunately it seems as though the model has been discontinued, however I believe this is the exact model I have:

I decided to kick things up a notch, and went for the best card I could find that is nVidia Gefore. I looked specifically for something in the 7XX range (as they are the newest generation) with preferably more than 1GB of VRAM (Which have bottlenecked me like crazy!) I managed to come across this wonderful card:

EDIT: Forgot to state: I was looking in around the $300 range!

My question is: Has anyone done an upgrade of similar cards? If so, how much of a difference is it? I've bought the card already however I want to know if you guys believe it's a huge difference.

What if we said no, you wasted your money? Would you feel bad? What would you do about it?

I don't really see how a GTX760 is better than a Titan or 780.

I wouldn't feel too bad, because I know it's still a large improvement, that and I'm 99% certain my GTX560 is dying anyways (The screen will lock up from time to time, when it comes to the mouse is some weird purple/yellow combination monstrosity).

Oh, I should have stated that I was looking in the around $300 range.

So why exactly did you feel the need to ask? I'm not trying to be a jerk, by the way. I'm just curious as to your thought process. I just don't understand why some people buy something, and then ask later if it was a good purchase. And according to you, you already feel it's a good purchase, so why are you asking?

I just wanted to ask you guys if you personally feel if it's a nice improvement from the specifications of the GTX 560.

You'll notice a fair improvement. I personally would have waited longer.

Last year, I had a 4890, and x4 720@3.4ghz. I bought a new machine, 3570k@4.4ghz and a 670 (about the same performance as a 760).

If I could go back, I'd have stuck with that old computer probably until at least spring of 2014. It's still around and still does a fair job at gaming.

So, I guess I just like a bigger bump from what I went. You're getting a smaller bump than what I did. That's how I feel I guess.

I agree with ya, however as I said I kind of think my card inside is failing now, I've been reading reviews and some people have upgraded from the Ti model of the 560 to the 2GB GTX 760 and were astounded by the performance boost, so I believed it was a nice upgrade.
