As far as Max settings at 1080p that depends on the game, but those cards you suggested are high powered and should handle most games. Another to consider if your not stuck on SLI is a AMD r9 390. However keep in mind in 2-3 years both of these cards will be obsolete, they'll do great now but if you build a new system down the road you will probably want a entire new system.

I think you are right the_patriot11. A radeon R9 390 that can run on my current system will be the best way to go until I get a completely new system in a couple years. 

AND - Where online can I sell my 1 GB GTX 560 ti? what would be a reasonable amount to ask for it? do they sell as is for used cards?

For selling used cards, I would watch Amazon used prices for a while. Polaris and Pascal are right around the corner though so if you can wait, I would. Perhaps OC your card to hold out a bit longer.

I'm a sapphire fan....but scath brings out a good point might be prudent to just use the card you got until you can afford a new system, or go with a mid range card. I'm running a sapphire r9 380 nitro in my system and can run codmw3 full graphics everything on my system and my systems just a slight bit on the ancient side. Otherwise, your dumping 5-600 bucks on a card you will be getting rid of in a couple years anyway, you will never see that money again

Not a whole lot of difference between r9 390 cards from different board partners. Just make sure to get a non-reference cooler.

And, pretty soon new gpu architectures will be released that are faster and more efficient by nvidia and amd.
