- 4 GB ram
- Radeon 4870, 512 GB
- PSU corsiar 650 watts

I dont want to spend a lot of money on a new grafic card if it dosent improve that much.

Hope someone can help

The system is not badly balanced for medium/low resolution gaming, if you are playing at 1680x1050 or 1080 a faster card will help, look around the HD6870/GTX460 class, more is going to be held back by the CPU, less is not going to give any framerate improvements.

The above link was prepared before the HD6790 and GTX550Ti were released so you should also check out a few reviews of those as well.
