Intel Core2Quad Q6600 @2.4GHz
nVidia GeForce GT220
4GB RAM DDR2
LC Power LC6550GP Version 2.0 350W
I was told to replace the GFX card for a GTX 560/GTX 560ti/GTX 650ti or a Radeon equivalent and to get a Raidmax 500W PSU, but I want your opinion as well.
some 650TI specs
Thermal and Power Specs:
105 CMaximum GPU Temperature (in C)
110 WMaximum Graphics Card Power (W)
400 WMinimum System Power Requirement (W)4
One 6-pinSupplementary Power Connectors
I would go for the equivalent Amd solution, for psu I would recommend the SeaSonic G-550 550W Gold Modular G-Series.

Minimum: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better
Minimum: 6 GB
Minimum: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better
Minimum: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit
The 650TI has good price/performance ratio but I've seen many complains from these card owners as well, Nvidia simply decided it's not worth their time to invest in those cards anymore, just my hunch..
true, so maybe a amd equivalent will be good
although i had myself a 660TI, which gave no problems driver wise
whatsoever,but went later on to a asus geforce 780

which is kinda obsolete again since asus released or is going to release the asus rog geforce 760 which has a dual gpu
or the 780TI

Congrats, awesome card! The driver issues started about 1-2 months ago with these cards and it's only with the latest game ready drivers, but there are some users reporting that the new drivers are stable with their cards, the driver issues are related more to system components compatibility, that is the official developers response.
So maybe with his current setup he wont have a problem but I would'nt count on it.
I'm thinking of going for the 7770 OC 1GB (all of them offered here are OC versions). It costs around 100 euros. The 7770 versions are from ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor and Sapphire. If I were to get a 7770, would it matter if it's ASUS or MSI or some other company listed above?
