    My computer & future upgrade possibilities

    I want to upgrade my computer a bit, currently i run BF3 on ultra with a screen resolution of 1366x768 with around 55-35 FPS.
    This or next month i will get money, and i need to know if my mobo supports a gtx 760 or if there are any better options, then tell me

    Mobo : ASrock N68-VS3 FX
    Current GPU : Geforce GTX 650 1GB
    AMD Phenom II X4 - will this bottleneck if i get an GTX 760?

    Also, will i have enough space in my case, its not the biggest one and i think it is pretty small.

    Here are some pictures.
    PSU

    Case

    Indeed you'll be bottlenecked to hell and back with any Phenom.

    Also, get an actual PSU rather than that $20 hunk of shit.



    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    That will assuredly help, even more so than a CPU upgrade.
    ​Problem being that your current CPU won't even be able to handle a 660.
