Hi guys, I'm buying a i7 dell system (350w psu) which comes with a GeForce G310 (512Mb) card, is it worth changing it?

I dont play any games, and will mainly be using it for photoshop and premiere on a 23" 1920x1080 monitor. My present laptop ( athlon tk-53 with a geForce 7000m) struggles with premiere especially if there are any H.264 clips on the timeline. My understanding is that the G310 supports PureVideo 4 gen. and so can handle most video codecs (inc H264) in the gpu. I was initially tempted to change the card for a HD 5670 but then had second thoughts since I dont play any games. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks guys for the advice, I'll keep the G310 for now. I used to dabble in 3d modelling (lightwave), if I go back to that then perhaps it might make sense to upgrade..
