Which I5 is it and how much are you looking to spend? There's obviously no point getting a giant beast of a card but the early Sandybridge I5's still hold up so a system upgrade may not net you as much as just a more modern GPU.

A GTX 270 isn't really going to give you much of a increase or was that just a typo there? I'm still running the sandybridge i7 and it's having no issues in the latest games. But what is your budget for the graphics card? I've found two mid range ones for around £100-150 from both Nvidia and AMD that would give it a boost.
Yeah typo, it's the R9 270X at about £150 I was looking at, on the theory it's not excessive for the current CPU and will scale reasonably when I upgrade the rest of it. The i5 (i5-760 2.8 ) was a cheap and cheerful £15 upgrade snaffled from ebay last year to replace an overclocked i3 - that was mainly cos I was getting a bit fed up of the time between turns on Civ 5...
