Is it worth it? From what I can tell the upgrade would be minimal, maybe 5-10% FPS if that. I only run 1080P on a 60Hz. TV. I plan to overclock. Is it better to check out ATI? I havent owned anything other than Nvidia in forever, but I am okay with checking out ATI.

Yes, it will be worth it.
Minimum frame rates and the increase in vRAM will make a nice difference for you even though average frame rates won't go through the roof.

Also, you won't have to worry about SLI support.

ATI.... its been a while since they were ATI! :)

I concur with Janus.. maybe find a single 290x or something. But for 1080p 60Hz, there isn't a need for SLI/CFx.. I would go 970 or 290x/390x personally.
