We need a budget to recommend. My first will be a 660ti.

You will most likely (95%) need a new PSU as well.
I think I can talk my wife into 250-300 dollar range

That's perfect for a 660TI only, but if you need and you probably do a new power supply, I would get a 660 and a good brand 500W PSU.

THIS WILL VOID YOU WARRANTY
opening that computer will most likely void your warranty.

what do you guys think about this power supply
and this GPU
I am not sure if that GPU would fit in his case, but he will need the extra cooling...

Depends on his budget, but he would be better off getting a 650TX and a GTX 660 instead.

Newegg.com - EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2662-KR GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Newegg.com - SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

250-300. This meets that 300 dollar price range.
