GTX 560 ti for $110 worth it?

Not really. Save a bit more and get a modern card.

To put it in perspective, I payed $150 almost 3 years ago for a card at about the same performance level.

Not really.
A 750 or 750ti should cost about the same, be more powerful, far more power efficient and run much cooler.
Have you accepted Raspberyl as your loli and savior?

Save another 140 and get a 760.
Games. That is all.

For the performance upgrade at that price? Not worth it.

Oddly I just upgraded from a 5770 and acquired two 560TI's (EVGA, 448 core ones) for $100 after shipping from a friend. Only using one however, since I don't have a second PCI-E slot.

Personally I know damn well I'm CPU bottlenecked, but I'm still noticing *some* performance improvements in games. Plus, and I don't want to start anything with this, but at least being able to get updated drivers is a plus.

The newest drivers for the 5770 were from like, March of 2013, and as such BF4 b****ed at me every time I played it because my drivers were 8 months older than the game.

Ultimately, don't expect a whole hell of a lot and it may not really be worth it for that card at that price. You'd almost be buying it just to be switching to Nvidia and/or getting something slightly newer that still has some limited driver support, if that's anything to you.

Hell I'm still running a 560ti. Still runs the majority of games I want to play at acceptable performance levels. *shrugs*. I'll upgrade eventually but haven't seen the need yet.

Um, weren't the 400/500 geforce series having problems with drivers past 314.22?

I think that is fixed now.
