Dont bump posts unless they fall off the first page....

Right your system is very good. If you want to get more out of your card you will need a better processor, but if theres a budget problem dont worry about it. Your system will be able to run most modern games on full blast, but the only thing which slows it down is the CPU. You might want to think about a cheaper card and better CPU. Its up to you

You will probably need to get a new PSU too. My RaidMax PSU that came with my case was not able to run my AMD 64 3200+. You will need one with at least 20A on the 12V rail.
