i currently have an old motherboard, i think it's 3 Years old that i got when i bought a HP Elite computer and the manufacturer is Pegatron or cleveland.. something like that and i am wondering if i should buy a new graphics card like an GTX 670 or 680 but i'm not quite sure if it would work or make a serious bottleneck.
and also i do have an intel i5 2500k, geforce gt420, 4GB ram 1333Mhz 1 TB HDD.

i am really confused, because i'm always thinking if i should buy a new motherboard and cpu, or just go with the same mobo same ram and same cpu and get the new Gpu.

also, the case that i am going to use is corsair obsidian 550D

please help !!

Well with your CPU the gtx 680 will run lovely. In order to help you better though, it is necessary to refer to the model of your motherboard.
