Yes absolutely,

 

I have the same GPU (3GB Superclocked edition though) and can handle every game I throw at it on high - max settings (Metro: LL, Far Cry 4, Deadrising 3, Wolfenstein: TNO, etc.

 

So yes, go for your life!

Your CPU is good but leaves a bit to be desired. You should be able to run most games fine but don't be surprised if you have trouble running real heavy hitter games such as Farcry 4 if you try to crank up the graphical settings . You have an excellent amount of RAM and a great GPU but CPU is important as well. Like I said, for now it should be fine for the majority of games but consider upgrading your CPU in the future and make sure you check the minimum requirements for any demanding games you are considering purchasing.

Your pc is definitely not outdated. But with the newest more graphic-heavy releases such as The Witcher 3 which is coming out in a couple of days, you're going to have problems.

 

But like i said, not outdated, you can probably use this pc to play most games and be happy for another 2-3 years.

With merely an upgrade to the GPU, you'll be able to play pretty much any game you want. Try the 750 Ti or something from the 900 series.

The 750 Ti seems like a step down in terms of performance looking at these AnandTech benchmarks. I have a GTX 760, which isn't that far off from the GTX 660. IIRC, Steam conducted a hardware survey and found the GTX x60 (that is cards like the GTX 660 and GTX 760) were the most used cards or at least among them (JayzTwoCents has a video on it somewhere). It's an average video card for gaming. Looks like the most current results can be found here.

I have a 750 Ti SC in my semi-gaming rig and it works great.
