Hello ladies and gents, after approximately 7 years I've decided to get new PC. I am open to any suggestions.

Approximate Purchase Date: This month

Budget Range: 1000 - 1100 CAD

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, web browsing, netflix

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: CPU, mobo, RAM, GPU, HD.

Do you need to buy OS: No
Please note that if you're using an OEM license of Windows, you will need a new one when buying a new motherboard.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:
Memory Express but doesn't have to be.

Location: Winnipeg, MB, Canada

Parts Preferences: No preference.

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: Planning to re-use PSU - OCZ ZT series 750W (is it even doable???) and CPU cooler - Cooler Master 212 EVO

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Current system is old.

Here are two ideas that I have so far:

Thank you for the suggestion! Should I re-use the old PSU and maybe get a slightly better GPU? Or is my PSU cant keep up with the current parts?

Also, is the mobo compatible with the cpu or will need to be updated?
