Its really up to you. If you are happy with it now, then keep it. If you feel that it can't play some games, you can consider upgrading.

If I were you I would keep it. That card still has a lot of power left in it. I would wait for directx 12 or something to come out.

I would keep it as well. Maybe its just because I like older video hardware.
