I have a pre built pc more specifically an asus CM1745 I was wondering if it is able to be upgraded with a new video card. I am looking at an asus GTX750ti. is the pc able to handle to card with its current power supply? Will it even fit in the case and is it compatible? Thanks ahead of time.

Yeah, you should be good. But don't get the Asus one, as it needs a 6-pin power cable, which I doubt the PSU on your PC has.

This is a 6-pin power cable. It provides power to your GPU (Graphical Processing Unit, A.K.A Video Card). They generally do not come with GPU's, but the GPU's may come with an adapter from 2 Molex or SATA to this. I think the Asus GPU that you were looking at has a 2 Molex to 6-pin adapter, but that might max out the PSU (Power Supply Unit, A.K.A Power supply), if it even has the needed cables.

Thanks this helps a lot, So would getting a more powerful power supply solve this problem?

I have never heard of ULTRA, and that's not a good thing. This is what I would get:
