How much difference should I expect from a 560ti to a 680?

I'm lazy and hoping it'll be worth the effort to switch out my cards >_>

Almost double the performance in most games.

Wouldn't you be better off getting something like a 770? It's got virtually the same benchmarks as a 680 and is usually substantially cheaper.

Don't get a 680. It's practically a rebadged 580 since it's a GK104 chip.

Get a 770 which will be cheaper and better, or get a 780 which will be a lot better but also more expensive.

My friend got one from work and he's offering it to me. I have to pick it up, though, and it's, like, the next city over.

If he's giving you that for free you shouldn't even be responding to my post. You should be out the door and on your way to meet him.
