There are 3 things you need to consider when upgrading a graphics card.

1. Motherboard: Must have PCI-e 16x 2.0/3.0 expansion slot
2. Power supply: Must be large enough to power new graphics card
3. Case: Must be large enough to fit new graphics card

Based on the info you have provided, your motherboard is compatible with the GTX 660. Your PSU/Case compatibility is unknown.
