Is the 650 Ti good? or should i save up for a 660?

Here is what i currently have.
i5-3450 Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz
BIOSTAR TZ77B motherboard
4gb ram

I get 95 fps on CS:GO max settings and 90 fps on L4D2 max.

In my opinion you should save up to a 660 gtx, the 650 ti is better than a 550 ti, but it's not much of a upgrade, i rather get a 660 gtx or wait for newer generation cards that might come this year.

Wait just a few months and the 700 / 8k series is going to be released. Either get one of those or a more powerful card for way cheaper than you could get now.

ok lets say i dont wait for the new cards to come out. Are there any differences between the evga and asus 660 cards?

The asus has better cooling system and it's more quiet.
The evga has better support and warranty.
Both will do, as long it's a 660 gtx, get the cheaper one by then.
