There could be a different issue than it being your video card why you would all of the sudden lose alot of performance. but if you are looking for an excuse to buy another video card then the card you picked out would work fine in your system no problem...and yea you would remove the old amd drivers first before installing the new card.
also I would go with this card if I were you

take the newegg reviews with a grain of salt....realize that there were probably thousands of happy customers who card did not die but did not leave a review...also the card has a newegg return policy (30 days) and a 2 year warranty from sapphire but if that is not enough to convince you here is a diff 6850

also a good card

has a lifetime warranty

a 7750 is a much slower card and would become "outdated" sooner than the 6850
