Help with upgrading PC!

Hello, I was wanting to see if I could get some some help with upgrading my PC.
My processor: AMD A4-6300 APU with Radeon HD Graphics (2CPUs), 3.7GHz
OS: Windows 7 prof. 64bit
DX 11
My motherboard is an asrock FM2A58M-VG3+ and I have a Rosewill Challenger case.
I'm getting more into gaming, (don't know much about computers) and just bought GTA 5 and eventually, Hitman when it comes out, and obviously I need to upgrade. So I'm looking for some advice on upgrading my processor and graphics.
I was looking at getting the GeForce GTX 660 Ti and the AMD Athlon X4860K. Will these work with my computer and case? I'm wanting to have a decent gaming experience, but not wanting to get anything too expensive, so are these good options?
I was wanting an Intel processor, but I found out I'm limited to this list: http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ASRock/FM2A58M-VG3+.html

Thanks in advance!

Pick your CPU.

Then a GPU and then let's talk about a new PSU.

Why are you considering such an old GPU?

I was considering the GTX 660, mostly because of the price. I found it online for about $100. Do you have any less than $200 suggestions?
