8400gs not a gaming card at all, in fact to play modern games u should upgrade to a new better gaming card, since u have an i5 i would say u get a decent video card capable of playing the games and want and to be future proof.
i would say gtx 560ti or HD 6870 those are the best cards u could get below 250 dollars if ur in the states.
if u want under 200-150 i would say gtx 550 or HD 6770.
these cards require a good power supply it would be more helpful if u could tell us ur psu specs

I think the words "future proof" doesn't exists in computer world.
U need atleast 4gb of ram(add another stick of 2gb ddr3 1333 mhz 1.5v). Tell us your budget? Do u live in US?

Yes it's a good gaming card, make sure to take the one with GDDR5.

From Tom's Hardware:

"...for buyers interested in a great deal on a budget gaming card, we noticed that PNY's GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 is on sale for $40 at Newegg with free shipping. This card isn't quite as powerful as the $70 Radeon HD 5670. At $40, it's a steal, though.

It also looks like AMD's Radeon HD 5750/5770 cards are being phased out in favor of the Radeon HD 6750/6770. Since the 6700 series is essentially equivalent to the 5700 series with added Blu-ray 3D support and comparable pricing, the 5700 series won't be missed. Just don't mistake the 6700 cards for upgrades."

HD 5570 DDR5 is a gaming for the budget so is the HD 5670 i would say HD 5670
since HD 5670=9800gt very similar in performance plus HD 5670 does DX11 better than HD 5570.
