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.

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.
