The card is great, but you can get it for cheaper at newegg.

Well I can see you have a fx5600xt, this card is going to be like 20 times better lol, I looked at some FX 5600XT benchmarks and compared to some 6800GS benchmarks; the 5600 is around 12fps for most games and the 6800GS is around like 130. In some it was 5600 - .9 6800GS - 100, etc.
So you'll see much better graphics performance.
