The PSU is holding you back a little bit, i'd say that upgrade your PSU to something in the 650-850W range.
Corsair HX/AX series
Seasonic X-Series ( or platinum series )
XFX PRO series

Then you can pretty much pick any card out there currently, depending on your budget.
650W XFX PRO and GTX760 for example would run about $90 + $260 = $350
which would about double your framerates.

What is the brand of your PSU? If it's a Corsair, Seasonic, or XFX then you could get the Gigabyte GTX 760 WF Rev 2 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DGM8B6O/ref=as_li_q... and be all set. If not, you will need to upgrade your PSU to something like the Corsair CX 600 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0092ML0OC/ref=as_li_q...


That dell machine shipped with dell's own 460W PSU, kinda low for an "extreme performance system". So it probably has that.
Even the 5870 is pushing that PSU so I would say that while the GTX760 probably will run, it would be safer for the longevity of the system to upgrade the PSU as well.
