Will i3 2120 bottleneck a gtx 650ti boost for an upgrade?

I have a custom computer that my uncle gave to me, but i want a gpu upgrade. Right now I have a ATI 5450 Mobility, which sucks when I am playing any game. I want to get a new computer but I cannot afford it right now.

In order to upgrade, I want to replace my GPU with a GTX 650 Ti Boost. I am not very sure if an i3 2120 will bottleneck it. I am upgrading my PSU to a Corsair GS 600V2 (preparing for my future build) from a 420W generic psu. Currently I have around $380 AUD, minus around $150 for a headset and mouse. So I basically only have $230 for an upgrade.

PS. I am also going to get some fans for my Cooler Master Elite 334U (http://www.coolermaster.com.au/product.php?product_id=6724&category_id=3586). So if you guys could recommend some case fan setup preferably corsair?

    Will be fine, can handle GTX670's easy.

    Cooling, air in from front/bottom/side, out through top/rear.

    So for the front and side, Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition Fan.

    K, thankyou. I was wondering if there would be a cheaper but better option for the psu. http://www.msy.com.au/Parts/PARTS.pdf http://www.pcdiy.com.au/ad/Pricelist.pdf https://www.centrecom.com.au/. These are pretty mush the only shops I go to.

    UPDATE: I was thinking about the Antec HCG 620W over the Corsair GS 600 V2?
