Why not start another thread asking "should I upgrade mu GPU?' Not really please don't double post. Look at the hierarchy chart

Find one in your budget and determine if you have enough PSU. If you get more GPU than your mobo can handle you can always keep the GPU if you upgrade.

Your motherboard isn't an issue. It is your power supply that is more likely to limit the cards you can use. Tell us the brand and model of the PSU.

Raidmax really sucks, one should never buy cheap units. They aren't worth it when they fail and burn out the comp. Your cpu is on the weak side but I suggest that you go with a cheap 5750/6750. They are cheap and perform rather well.
