you can put any of the 7xx series in there the PCIE 3.0 is compatible with your PCIE 2.0. go for the best card you can afford. you may have to look into a power supply upgrade aswell. whats your budget for this upgrade? failing upgrading the PSU go for the 750 Ti. it only requires a 400w power supply so you fall within this. its not the most powerful card but will give you a nice boost

my budget is around 400-450 bucks and the PSU is 460w. And sorry for not mentioning this but as soon as i bought the computer i got the 650ti, just putting that out there.

with 450W, a 750ti would be quite doable

it said 460 on the page, but 10 watts is not that big of a deal

Your PC has 460W. In case you opt for 750Ti, this PSU will work. Otherwise, you would have to change the PSU in case you opt for 700 series GTX cards.

For your PC, 760/770 would be better choice.

if you already have a 650ti, you can jsut spend $50-60 on a good PSU and about $300 on a R9 280x or something

I really recommend you just get a new PC. Tt will be more cost-effective if you just go on ncix and buy a barebones kit, and then just throw in something low-mid end. initially it will cost more, but if you see yourself practicing gaming as a hobby then you will be much more pleased with the decision.

Or look for budget parts like this and ask around here for advice to make sure you get the right thing.

and as for the GPU, i don't know what you want to play and at what settings, but i'd recommend

If you stuck something in your current PC, you might now have the power supply requirement met or you would be bottlenecked because of a lack of ram or an obsolete motherboard.
So in the end if you think you're going to be gaming in the future and want to be able to run most game on decent settings, you will want to buy something actually meant for gaming.

will it bottleneck my system, or is this the best possible choice before i buy a new system in 3-4 years?


No bottleneck here. This card will be suffice for your 3-4 years gaming needs.
