Why would you get a 660 Ti when the 760 is cheaper and better?

The processor is fine. Are your frame rates dropping to non-acceptable levels at the graphics settings you can tolerate?

Well, I just wanted to dabble in downsampling while maintaining 60FPS. For now, most modern games I can run just fine from high to max settings at 60FPS. When next-gen hits, I feel like my setup won't do for the graphical settings and performance that I want.

Keep the CPU until the new ones come out that support DDR4 ram and then upgrade. That's what I'm holding off for.

Wait until these next gen games come out, test their performance, then decide based on that. As a bonus, you will have new GPU offerings in that time period. Don't overthink these things too much.
