I am buying this computer (This) and was wondering what power supply and/or case I should upgrade to, because I want to put a new Nvidia GTX 750ti SuperClocked in it, and I'm not sure if the current case/psu can handle it.
is
My budget for both is about $55-60, if that's do-able, if a new psu can fit in the current case, then I don't need a new case, but if a new psu needs a new case, I'll just move the mobo and everything else to the new case, but old case is preferable. Thanks!!!! I know you guys have much more expertise on this than I! Thanks

The 300w power supply should power the 750 Ti enough as it has 75W TDP as mentioned above. Have you ever measured how much clearance you have for the gpu prior to buying it?

But 300 watts would do good too

I haven't specifically looked into the measurements, but its a small card that's designed to fit into most cases

Just to be sure, measure it, have a look inside. Might break the warranty sticker (if any) on the side panel.

Typically the 750Ti requires a psu of 400w
The 750Ti is a rather small gpu and should have no problems fitting in the case you have now.

If you really do want to change, the motherboard is listed as a micro-atx, so any case that size rating or larger is usually sufficient.
