Looks like it will work.

But pretty entry level for games. Expect entry level to low settings for gaming.

Tips?

What do you think I should consider upgrading?

Depends on budget.

I like the i5 and for GPUs the Nvidia 750 or higher. For most 1080p games that delivers enough without raiding a small country.

I'll be willing to spend $300 on Graphic card and Proccessor

If I get a really good graphics card would the CPU be good enough to not bottleneck it?

Notice this old i5 didn't bottleneck.

"Our tests demonstrate fairly little difference between a $225 LGA 1155 Core i5-2500K and a $1000 LGA 2011 Core i7-3960X, even when three-way graphics card configurations are involved. It turns out that memory bandwidth and PCIe throughput don't hold back the performance of existing Sandy Bridge-based machines. "

So if your CPU is about 1/2 of an old i5 2500k then why do folk think the bottleneck is there when this old i5 didn't bottleneck in a three way?
