Upgrading Graphics Card (Nvidia 650 ti boost vs Nvidia 600)

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: ASAP BUDGET RANGE: $150-250

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming: Far Cry 3, Battlefield 3, COD Black Ops II, COD Modern Warfare 3 (and similar future release titles) etc.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GX2 (Yep it's time for an upgrade)
600W Diablotek PSU

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS:
AMD Phenom(tm) 8450 Triple-Core Processor
4GB RAM
FOXCONN A7DA-S (Motherboard) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186150

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com, amazon.com, USA

PARTS PREFERENCES: Looking for Nvidia (Unless

OVERCLOCKING: Dont care
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: It would be preferred, but not essential

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920 x 1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I don't have a top of the line system (clearly), although at some point I am looking to upgrade my computer, but for right now I am mostly concerned with upgrading the graphics card. My main question is would I even see a difference between the 650 ti boost or 660 (due to my system being a bottleneck for the graphics card). And of course if there are other suggestions for good cards that would be helpful as well. I am not super picky when it comes to having to play everything on "ultra" settings, but if I could that would be nice. :)

    650Ti Boost is a good choice not that far from the 660 in performance
    The HD 7850 is also a good option, The following chart will give you an idea

    With that CPU occasional bottleneck can not be denied in some modern games, but @720p or 1080p gaming @ high graphics its ok. Adding some more memory will help gaming. Thanks
