MB:asus b85m-g
Cpu:i3 4460
Ram:4x2 gb ram ripjaws
Gpu: zotac gtx 760 4gb

Yes, you can just replace the GPU. Pay attention to the power requirements of whatever GPU you are looking at (both 6-ping/8-ping connectors and total wattage recommendations). Also, a newer GPU may not give you that much of a performance boost as you will be performance limited by your CPU.
Best bet - don't spend a lot on a much newer GPU. Get something cheap from eBay that is at least as good as the one that died and start saving for a complete system replacement.
