So if I have a GTX 560 Ti, should I upgrade to this? I'm not much of a PC gamer so I'm not sure how significant a leap this is.

I would say that if you are playing games fine then no don't upgrade.

560 Ti is still good enough to handle almost anything. I think you should keep it.

General rule is to wait 2 generations of GPUs (from GTX 560 to GTX 760), then see if you feel like you want to upgrade. I have a GTX 560 Ti myself right now, and I'm running nearly every game maxed out at 60fps/1080p, and at least 2xAA, usually 4X or more. It's more than enough for at least a couple of years.

The 560 Ti is still a solid card for current games. If its performance satisfies you, then you probably don't need to upgrade.

But if you want to go for more and you can find a matching card and a good deal, perhaps you could go the SLI route (lots of performance there => a pair of 560 Ti's can outdo a 580) - especially if future games really give you a performance hit. If you're comfortable tweaking settings (I know you said you aren't a die hard PC gamer), you can also overclock to eek out a bit more.

Personally, I follow the upgrade every couple of generations pattern (sometimes 3 if my card(s) holding up well with current games).

I've got a pair of 560 Ti's SLI'd and probably won't look to upgrade until they are getting long in the tooth - and when my wallet allows (the 700 or 800 series will be my next upgrade).
