Yes, but then if you upgrade the processor, then the 650ti will be the bottleneck.. (and repeat loop..)

If you want the 650ti, get it, there is nothing wrong with it. Consider upgrading other components at a future time.

maybe yes, but not too much..
650Ti not a very strong graphic card, consider as low range..

You can try to overclock your Q9550 at 3.5Ghz to eliminate bottleneck.
Q9550 still a good processor. on par with AMD phenom II class clock per clock.

no, it won't. Your processor would be able to handle cards up to a GTX660/ti. I've a q6600 @ 3ghz, and a 560ti ( which is more powerful than a 650ti) and there's no bottleneck. A 650ti however, isn't the best card, the Boost version would be a good compromise between price/performance, and is much better than a 650ti. The 650ti Boost is basically a hampered version of the GTX660 and is a very good card.

Don't afraid..
If you do that in the right way, you'll gain noticeable speed increase over stock clock..

for overclocking guide you can read this article..

Just make sure you have a good heatsink (not stock) to make your processor keep cool while overclocking..

coolermaster hyper 212+ is a very good cooler for budget user..
