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

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.
