No it Won't,it will work well,however I'd suggest into looking at Nvidia's 900 series if you can,or wait for 370X. But in any case,yes this GPU will work well.

Also, I was wondering if my rig is good or not in general. About how long do you think I could play demanding games on this rig (such as advanced warfare, etc.) at a smooth 60fps or higher before having to upgrade parts?

I'd probably go with the Powercolor one, but you basically won't notice anything if you compare these 2. So if you're in love ith the powercolor, get that, but otherwise get the cheaper or the one that looks better in your rig, your call :) (I was in love with this one, the temp is pretty cool, (pun intended) the 3 badass fans perform awesome, running on 54°C maximum)

Thinking about picking one up for $247 us dollars. Will I gain anything noticeable if I replace my Hd6950 2gb with one of these? Also does it look like the rest of my machine will support it? Mother board : : Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3

Thanks for the advice. I really like my 965BE, but for the price of this GPU, I can upgrade to a FX6300, new asus mobo, and 8gb of 1600 MHz ram. I think this would be money better spent right now.
