yea, 660Ti is PCIe 3.0 but its backward compatible, your mobo has PCIe 1.0.. BUT, any CPU on LGA775 will seriously bottleneck the 660Ti

It will fit, but you won't get the performance you desire. It won't perform like a GTX 660 Ti should because of your processor.

Also, you need a really good power supply for that card, what do you have?

I agree with the Core i3, but if you want to save money, you could get a crappier mobo that will still do the trick. The ASRock h61M-DGS is 45$ and will support everything you are asking for atm.

However, if you have the money, then try to get a Z77 board.
