Many graphics cards won't bottleneck. The only ones I can think of is like a powerful crossfire or sli configuration.
Some good cards for the price.
Amd 7970 - $250 to $300 now.
Gtx 770- $300-$350

R9 270, R9 270X, 7950, 7870XT, 7870 $150-200 range all good options for 1080p
R9 280X if 7970's are not available are also in the $300 range.
R9 290 is $400-450 once the custom cooled ones come around, they should be a viable option
GTX780 $500
R9 290X $550-600 once the custom cooled ones come around, they should be a viable option.
GTX780Ti $649

So you can pretty much take your pick with that CPU at the budget you have.

Does the graphics card need to fit the case an dif so how do you know it will fit it?

It is a little difficult to say from the picture, but it isn't really a huge card, so it should fit most cases of that category.

The PSU wasn't listed properly on it do it didnt say what kind of power connectors it has, 'usually' it will, but you would have to find out how many PCIe power connectors there are, generally you might want to know more about the psu anyway.

That's a good CPU. An upgrade decision would actually be hard... a 4670K for the unlocked multiplier, sure I suppose. But it wouldn't really be noticeable enough; you would have to step up to an i7-4770K. But again, why bother... LGA 1150, heck you'll be able to drop in a Broadwell i7 in ~2015 if needed.
