Do your research on cards before you buy them.

Note that nVidia doesn't put their graphic cards in a straight numerical order. This is really important to understand when purchasing their cards...

The first number refers to the series, for the GTX series it would be 6xx, 7xx, 8xx, 9xx, etc. Later is better technology wise. So the 9xx series would have later technology support than the 7xx and before. You would therefore get better directX versions support, capability of higher resolutions, etc.

The value after that refers to the performance, for the GTX series it would be x50, x60, x70, x75, x80, or x90. Also they have TI (increased texture mapping, etc) and other overclocked versions (increased clock speed) which give better performance for a price. You could however get a standard card and overclock it yourself in most cases (if you know what your doing). What to note what they do here is...

x50 - For the average application users, low performance, low budget card. NOT designed for major gaming, rather more basic users - web-browsing, watching movies, etc.

x60 - For the basic entry level gamer, average performance, low-mid budget card, mid to high quality/performance.

x60 TI - For average gamers, mid budget card.

x70 - For actual gamers which require more performance, mid-high budget card, can get up to high/ultra settings with the later models.

xx5 - The 5s are normally use as a replacement for the older series, to match performance. If a old card is still under warrenty and needs replacing they might consider one of these, giving the newer technology but same performance.

x80 - For high-end gamers, high budget card, for high/ultra settings and higher resolutions.

x90 - These are pretty much just two x80 glued together with a custom cooler. For the insane users with more money than sense, overpriced / overkill card.

Basically all you need to know before researching a card to buy. I just usually go for the big boy cards and stick to them for multiple years, so I'd recommend the 980 TI or even the Titan if you want to spend that much and to have it last for a while.

Ok... that's all great but let's simplify this. Should i get rid of this GC and switch to one?

Not sure about your card in particular, but you'd almost definitely see significant performance boost even out of a 750ti. Even a 650ti would likely run circles around your card. The 960 currently has a nice price/performance ratio. Most people should be satisfied with the 960.

Up to you. Do you feel satisfied with what you have? Does it perform the way you like, and is the quality what you enjoy? Do you want something thats a little better of your current card?

I can't answer for your budget, requirements and likes ;)

I looked at everyone else's computer specifications and now I am too embarrassed to say mine. Let's just say I still use a PC whose motherboard has a 32-bit architecture.
