Your cpu and new gpu video card should be able to handle it fine.
If you plan on doing any more gaming beyond minecraft I suggest you upgrade your cpu very soon to prevent bottlenecking.

AMD Athlon ll x4 630 2 8GHz Socket AM3 Quad Core CPU Processor ADX630WFK42GI | eBay

Or phenom 2 x4 quad cpus would hold you steady for a few good years.
