no, definitely not worth it. you would get a very tiny boost in performance. The only benefit is dx11, which has yet to be widely or effectively implemented.

If you are not happy with your current performance and want a signifcant upgrade you should get at least a 560ti or 6950. But then your cpu may bottleneck you in some games.

not worth the effort. more like a sidegrade than an upgrade. Bare minimum upgrade from that for a noticeable difference would be a 6850/5850 or gtx 460 1gb
