Should I upgrade my gtx 560 to a gtx 760 2gb

OR

My i3 to an i5 ivybridge and my 560 to a 660?

Def i3 -> i5.

i3 will choke 760 hard.

Also recommend the k model for overclocking, totally worth the small extra.

i5 and GTX 660. Also probably good idea to get 7200 RPM HDD in future instead of that slow one you have. 5400 RPM hard drives are for data archives and storage, not for system drives and gaming.

whats your budget for the upgrade?

could go to an i5 3570 or 3470

i3 may bottleneck the 670/760 but it depends on the game
for source games no since they only need 2 cores
ue3 and newer games its possible, but no worse than an amd quad
