How would one hook up a new graphics card?

Hello, i was recently told i could buy a 750 ti without buying a new power supply (which is good) but my main question now is, how would i hook it up exactly? how would i unplug my current card? is the 750 ti worth the money? What games can i run if i get it and at what settings? how do i plug in its power cables to whatever i need them in? i need someone to go into grave detail plz and thank you. ill link my PC below.

    Grave detail. I shall grant your request. Prepare to read this until your inevitable death. JUST KIDDING.

    Unplug your computer
    Hit power button to drain capacitors.
    Open Case
    Get grossed out by dust
    Most likely you have a support bar so unscrew the bar going from the front of your pc overtop of your current card.
    Pull out bar
    Unscrew your current card.
    Press down on the back of the PCIE(slot the card is in) slot. Should be a plastic piece that is winged out
    Pull straight up on card.
    Unwrap new card.
    Unscrew second expansion slot blocker under the first open one. Metal piece at the back of the computer.
    Plug in 750ti
    Put on case support bar.
    Screw in case support bar.
    Put side panel back on.
    Plug in.
    Press power.
    Good Luck.

    750ti is definitely worth it. Medium settings max at 60fps. No additional power required.

  2. it should be rather simple since you dont actually have to plug anything into the gpu itself. All you need to do is put the 750ti into the PCI slot and you are done.

    What your 750 ti can do: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1130
  3. One very important step to add to aaron's list: Ground yourself to the case to avoid giving static shocks to the motherboard/gpu and destroying it.

    You can get one of the designed anti-static bracelets that basically has a wire clip running to the case, or just frequently touch the case while working. Also, try not to open and do the work in a room with a carpet, as you rubbing against the carpet while moving can give you a static charge.
