Well, having to upgrade your CPU, MOBO, RAM, PSU, pretty much everything of importance (sans the hard drive), that upgrade would BE building it from scratch essentially.

If you want to use the same case, fans, hard drive, odd, etc., then upgrade the necessaries.

If you can wing it get the 750ti and a new PSU. The cheapest thing I say to go with in the PSU department is the Corsair CX500. See what it does and if the frames are acceptable for YOU. If they aren't, you gotta get a new motherboard, CPU, and RAM.

List everything you currently have. If it's a prebuilt list the make and model. Anything we can reuse will reduce the cost.
