Default Questions about upgrading a PC

My current build is almost 5 years old, I am thinking of upgrading and handing down some parts to my nephew, who wants to get into PC gaming.
I have the following:

23" Asus 75hz 2ms Monitor
Nvidia GTX 660TI
Intel i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4Ghz quad core
-120mm radiator and Fan 02 cooler
8GB of RAM of PC3 12800
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H Mobo
630Watt 80 Plus Bronze PSU
240GB SSD
3TB HDD

I am thinking of upgrading the monitor and GPU, I had a friend over and he was playing Overwatch and he noticed a big difference in the graphic performance between our two computers. I guess I am use to it.

I am thinking about getting the following:
23" LCD w/ 1MS and 144hz
Nvidia 1060

I have looked at bench marks and reviews of some GPUs and monitors, though I am curious if there would be much, if any bottle neck with the RAM and CPU combo I currently have.

I prefer to buy most for my money in terms of performance. I like to spend under $300 for a GPU.

What PSU is that? 630w is a strange rating, so I'm wondering if it's one worth trusting for even longer to power new parts.

If you're playing at 1080p, and intend to keep playing there, the 1060 should keep you pretty happy.
