Would an AMD Phenom 2 X4 965 go well with a nvidia gtx 660 superclocked? Or should I upgrade the CPU?

It should be fine, if you can afford an i3 3220 or an FX 4300/6300 then get those instead. BUT the 965 is still a decent processor. It's still a quad core and it can overclock.

there will be a bottleneck, but it wont be that bad because the phenom is still pretty good. Like said above, if you have the money i would upgrade the cpu. Maybe to an i5 or an fx-6300
