Hey I doubt you'll be able to get a better card for that price to even see a slight improvement. I'd suggest you save up more money to buy GTS 450 or 550 Ti..

Your 300W PSU is a tier 4 which is not recommend for use and If you upgrade your graphic card then you need a better PSU.

With the i3 CPU you could get a 6750 or a 6850 with a 450w PSU. You also might think about better ram or just faster like a 1600mhz.

Here is a link to PSU's from the best to the worst. If I get time I will look for links to newegg for the psu and gpu. Good luck

edit Don't get a GTX 550Ti it is the worst of the Nvidia 5 series cost to much for what it can give.

I wouldn't recommend the GTS 450 or 550 Ti since they use more than twice the amount of power the HD 6670 uses... unless you also want to upgrade your power supply as well.
