When looking at the upgrade options it shows full sized video cards. (GTX 760 and HD 270X)

If you can find this card for the $165 or less where you live it would be a definite upgrade to what you currently have.

The GTX 645 that you have is a full size card.

Spending money to go from a 645 to a 650 seems a waste.

Save the $165 for another few months and pick something in the 7xx Nvidia or R9 series for a decent price. $165 isn't enough for a reasonable upgrade, and the 650 ti will still be the bottleneck in your system.
