✔ Best Answer

GTX 550 Ti with i5-3570K should be a good match.
Not sure if the GTX 650 Ti is actually a step up, but the GTX 660 definitely is, but at a premium.
Many references refer to workstation cards for Autocad (I assume pricier), but not as much for Photoshop if you run that also.
List your complete specs if you want someone to look at the complete picture.
Let us know if you plan on running Photoshop or other graphics intensive programs as well.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
