Is my GPU worth upgrading?

I currently have a computer that's only used for playing World of Warcraft.


AMD Phenom II X4 940 @ 3.1GHz
8GB DDR2 @ 800MHz
ATi Radeon 4890 OC'd about 10%

I was just wondering if it's even worth upgrading my GPU to, lets say, a 6870, or if I should just make a new build with an i7, DDR3 RAM, etc.

Forgot to mention I use 2x 21" LCDs @ 1080p resolution, one for WoW, the other one for ventrilo, or web surfing. I generally get over 60fps until 25man raids where it'll dip to 20. Not all my settings are maxxed in game, most are around medium.

You will have much better results and a lot more fun with a new build.
