    You can get a 660 for a little over 200 and for about 50 over 200 you can get a 660ti

    Well you have a 650ti, so the only things above that are the 660 or 660ti
    And i think AMD's equivalents are more power hungry

    500W Should be fine.
    Something like this should suffice. MSI N660TI-2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - Newegg.com
    Unless you can dish out a little more money, you can grab a 660 Ti SuperClocked which are definitely worth their money.

    Yeah he would, although it's better to upragde gpu before cpu (i'm pretty sure)
    it will bottleneck

    I have a AMD fx 4100 black ed. and it definitely bottle necks my 760
    Upgrading to a 8350 soon though

    Agreed with both, you'll get a bottle neck with that processor, even if the new GPU is better, you wont get the performance that it was designed for

    Try to get a GTX 760 on sale. Great bang for the buck and you'll definitely be satisfied with its performance. Heck, I'm trying to get rid of my 690 just so I could pick up a 760.
    Good luck!
