Sounds like the card is running in g instead of n if you are expecting it to be faster than it is

First thing I would do is update to the latest drivers (I think the link you need is: http://www.station-drivers.com/page/ralink.htm)

Then ensure it is set up to run at n speeds (assuming your router can do this too)

Personally I do not think you will see a great deal of difference in day to day use if you upgrade but having a card that is faster than your internet connection has advantages on your home network too

My gut feeling then is stick with what you have and if you feel it is not performing after you get your new internet then hardwire to test and for those odd occasions when you have to get the job done quickly. If the frequency that you wish to hardwire becomes too high then you know it is time to get better wireless kit

EDIT: what is your router capable of?
