Your CPU is going to be a definite bottleneck so if you can upgrade your CPU and Mobo then That is recommended first. If you can't and only have enough budget for a Graphics card then adding a 650 will increase your gaming performance by a lot. It's a good upgrade but you want to make sure you have enough power. What PSU do you have?

If you open up your computer you can check your PSU. It has it labeled on there. And Yes you will get good FPS in games but games who are very CPU intensive will be bottle necked by your CPU.
