Build Advice Please

A couple of years ago I bought an Advent DT1411, and it worked fine for me and since Xbox has got a new console I'm deciding to leave Console gaming and become a full PC gamer, but I think I'm going to need to upgrade and I was looking about for stuff to buy to upgrade my PC, this is my current setup:
Intel Core i5-2320
8GB RAM
1.5TB Hard drive
AMD HD6670 2GB (GDDR3)
Foxconn H61MXL-K Motherboard
Jeantech PUFP-405 400 Watt
(Yes I Know the PSU is terrible I upgraded to a corsair 500W sometime earlier this year and broke it, completely my fault :L)

Budget Range: Around £350 (About $550) If you need to put the budget up I could but I would be really happy if you could keep it under that.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, I would like the PC to last a couple years of high end/medium gaming to its next upgrade.

Are you buying a monitor: No already got one

Parts to Upgrade:
Graphics Card
PSU
Possibly CPU (If needed)
Possibly Motherboard (If needed)
(Please note I think the Foxconn Motherboard is designed to only work with Intel Chip sets)


Do you need to buy OS: Only if a new Motherboard is required

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Amazon, not really bothered about the site as long as the shipping is low and the site is trustworthy/known

Location: UK

Parts Preferences: Prefer to have an AMD CPU (If needed) and AMD graphics card.

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, probably only need one though

Your Monitor Resolution: 1440/900

Additional Comments: None

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: As said Im switching to PC gaming I spend all of my spare time gaming or in the gym so I would like something that can run newer games at high FPS if possible.
