Default Graphics card help.

So currently i have a ATI Radeon HD 5700 and was thinking of upgrading but im not sure if i really need to so i was wondering if my card could run the new games coming out such as BF3 and the new elder scrolls now i'd like to think i know abit about pc but really i don't not im not completely sure if my graphics card is an ATI Radeon HD 5700 it what my computer is saying but at the end its say that its an ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series so i think it might be a 5750 but im not sure your feed back would be nice linus i will also post my Computer specs and what case i have so if you have any suggestions it will make it easyer.

OS: Windows 7 64bit
memory: 8Gb
Processor: intel i7
Motherboard:Gigabyte EX58-UD5(i guess this is right)
Case:Lian-Li LanCool PC-K62

Also another reason i want to change my graphics card is that in certain games i get these wierd black lines which move around according to were my charater is any input on this bug would be great.

I would say HD 6950/GTX 570 if you want to run BF3 & skyrim at decent settings, depending on your resolution of course.

For these games a GPU upgrade is the most important one, with a 5750 not sure BF3 will run even on low...
