I have Z77-D3H motherbord
Intel® Core™ i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670
16gb ram
erocool Integrator 600W 80 Plus Bronze psu

what graphics card should I get that would work well with what I already have?
 
The support limitation will never be the motherboard but the psu.
Your psu is a budget unit, but in theory, it could run a card as good as a GTX1080.
Here is a nice chart for gpu power requirements:

But, your 150£ will only buy you a GTX1050ti which is approximately equal to your existing GTX670.
A meaningful upgrade would be a GTX1070 which will cost you twice as much.
 
but what are actual chooses for me now ? i thing it would be enough tu run csgo gta farcy blacops 3 ant similar games on medium to high settings
Those games tend to be cpu intensive.

Try this test:
Run YOUR games, but lower your resolution and eye candy.
If your FPS increases, it indicates that your cpu is strong enough to drive a better graphics configuration.
If your FPS stays the same, you are likely more cpu limited.

If you are cpu limited can you overclock your 3770K a bit?

The problem is that one of the graphics cards fans have 3 blades broken off and its old too so I just want to upgrade it to new one

and if i play csgo one medium configuations my fps is around 130 but gta is only 30-70fps
 
Since your graphics card is damaged, it is time to either repair it or buy a new one.
Still, if you are going to change out a fan, you really should buy a strong enough jump in performance or you may be disappointed.
Did you do my little test?
What was the before and after fps?

Some games are cpu limited and some are graphics limited.
Best to know which one applies to you.
