If I buy a new GTX 950 now, would the game performance, watching 4K video smoothness all way better than my aged HD5770?

I read this:
http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-HD-5770-vs-GeForce-GTX-950
and seem like it is not really that much improvement after so many years.
I am thinking about buying a 4K monitor and a new graphic card GTX 950, mainly to improve game performance (mainly play CSGO and wish to play with 1080 all highest setting. I play with 1080 now but setting is generally between middle and high only) and watching 4K video/youtube. I am not planning to upgrade my cpu, motherboard, and ram yet which are E6500 OC to 3.66Ghz, G41 motherboard and 4GB ram. Running Windows 10 pro 64bits. 24" 1080 monitor now with around 5 years of usage.

One thing the 950 has over your current card is HDCP 2.2 support. You'll need this to play things like 4K Netflix content and 4K Blu-rays that have come out after 2013 or around there.
Without HDCP 2.2 support there is certain content which you will not be able to send to the 4K monitor (provided it also supports HDCP 2.2)

Watching 4k content should run just fine. And 1080p should be fine as well maxed out.

However, dont expect miracles from a older gen, cheap card, you will not be able to play at 4k and get more than 10 fps MAX in most modern games. It will not be playable unless you revert the resolution to 1080p.

PLAYING 4k games and getting solid 60 FPS constantly is only really achievable by the new Titan X (pascal) a 1200$ card.

I know current technology cannot support 4K gaming with reasonable price, and I don't try that. I just want to watch 4K video/youtube and play CSGO with max setting in 1080.
