Don't expect a big upgrade, your CPU will bottleneck newer mid-range / high-end GPUs big time. Planetside 2 does require a decent CPU.

Radeon 7750 requires Little power and does a great job. You won't get highest details, but you will see a major difference - If your CPU allows it.

You might consider getting a new desktop if your budget allows it, if you'd like to keep up with new and upcoming games.

Your GPU was NEVER ment for gaming. Anything will be a huge upgrade.

Your CPU can also be overclocked over 3.5GHz, or you could drop in a quad core phenom II
