That is a pretty beefy GPU and a pretty old CPU, you might have some bottleneck issues with that. This is a cool website that can scan your computer and tell you how your specs compare to the minimum and recommended requirements for tons of different games, are there any specific games you want to play?

Is this a pre-built computer that you just added the GPU to? I think you would need a CPU upgrade as well but I have never tried gaming on that series. And it looks like your motherboard is LGA 1156, which unfortunately doesn't leave much room for upgrades.

If you did get those, I am fairly sure you would need a new motherboard, as the one you have now is socket LGA 1156. If you could, vist this thread and follow those directions to publish a speccy screenshot, that way I can get a better handle on your motherboard.
