  1. I would add another 4 GB of RAM.

    The GPU: look at HD 7770, HD 7870, GTX 650 Ti, GTX 660, GTX 660 Ti.

    Exactly what kind of PSU do you have? Some have 500W written on them but don't really deliver it.

    won't I suffer from bottle nick with gtx 659 TI?
    and how much the difference in term of power between gtx 650 TI and gtx 660 TI?

    would it be any good to replace the CPU?

    You most definitely will, though I'd say get the best card in your budget and save up for a new system and then use that card with your eventual system down the line

    If that's DDR2 RAM then don't bother upgrading it since it's expensive, save that up for a future CPU/mobo/RAM overhaul
