My planning graphics : Nvidia Geforce GTX 650 4gb GDDR3 (I don't very sure what name is it)
My planning processor : Intel Core i3
My motherboard : ASRock N68C-GS FX

Is Nvidia Geforce GTX650 4gb GDDR3 suitable for my motherboard?

Processor is not compatible with motherboard
Choice of GPU is very wrong. Get a 1GB GDDR5
GPU depends on power supply

+1 the board is for AMD CPUs so will not work with an intel one and avoid GPUs with DDR3 ram.

Your motherboard DDR specification is related to the RAM and not the Graphics card. As I said before the graphics card depends on the PSU

The RAM on your motherboard is separate from the RAM on your GPU. The GPU's RAM can only be utilised by the GPU, hence GDDR5 compatibility is not a concern for any other component in your system; you only have to consider if your motherboard supports PCI-Express x16 (the GPU's slot) or not, and in your case it does. :) 

First of all, please may I ask what is your budget? How much are you willing to spend? Also do you have DDR3 RAM in your current system, or are you using DDR2? (Your motherboard supports both.) Is your hard drive or optical disc drive using IDE or SATA by the way, or are you using any IDE connectors? Finally are you using any of the PCI slots in your motherboard?

If you answer the above, you could potentially purchase a new motherboard to switch over to Intel, purchase an Intel CPU and a decent GPU too. That is if all that can be done within your set budget. That way you could upgrade to a more modern system.

Of course you're not obliged to, but you can upgrade if you desire.

All the best. :)
