It is about twice as fast as your current card, and your power supply can handle it, assuming you split the load of the GPU on one 12v rail and the rest of the computer on the other, so if you get it for a good price and it hasn't been used for mining, go for it. Your CPU is still abysmally slow, especially once exploit protections are applied, so don't expect a -huge- increase in performance.

Thank you very much. I'll go for it. Umm, I'm not really sure about splitting the load, as I've never Done it before, but I'll figure something out. Thanks again.
