I was lookin into this card, but many had problems with it and price went up when i was getting ready to buy
I'd advise looking at the HD 7000 series. The newer and more expensive card you can afford, the better performance you'll get. I really like HIS - they make great coolers on most of their cards. Either one of these would make a great upgrade from your current card (50-100% better framerates).
