I have this PC and I'm thinking of replacing my Quadro 2000D to Asus Ge Force GTX 780 3GB GDDR5. I'm mainly using Photoshop and Illustrator as a graphic program and 3Ds Max for my 3D objects. If you guys think it is okay do you think my power supply can handle it or I should replace it too?
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77 V-PRO
Processor: Intel Core i7 Quad core 3.5Ghz
Graphic Card: Nvidia Quadro 2000D 1GB GDDR5
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 32GB DDR3 1600MHz CL10
SSD: OCZ Vertex 3 120GB 550MBs/500MBs
Tower: NZXT Phantom 410
Power Supply: Corsair TX 750 Bronze.
Thank you in advance.

Your power supply is more than enough for this system.
You need a rating of 39A on the combined +12V rails.
This supply is rated at 62A on the +12V rail.

Do you think the GTX780 is better than the quadro 2000D. I mainly use my PC for graphic design and not so much 3D like before and I also like to play some of the latest games like watch dogs which is coming...

The Quadro 2000D is a workstation card from the previous generation, not in the same league as the GTX 780.
The Quadro K2000D is maybe stronger than the GTX 780 on double precision floating point processing, but I'm really not sure.

The GTX 780 is very powerful but the double precision floating point processing is deliberately crippled.
The workstation cards tend to have better performance in this area.
The K2000D is a much weaker GPU however.

Cards with the same GPU as the GTX 780 and higher performing double precision floating point processing are the GTX Titan and Quadro K6000.
