Just two questions,

1. What do you intend to be doing (Gaming, Video Editing, etc)
2. Whats your price range?

I couldn't really tell you without trying the one you have now, and that one on Newegg.

I can say that you will get a bit more performance out of that one on newegg though. Unless theres something else on your computer thats bottlenecking your performance.
