I think Dead Rising need something around a GTX 570 minimum and GTX 670 recommended which are more powerful than the 750Ti. So if you go to the 750Ti you won't be able to run it on max settings. It will help that you are only doing a 1400 x 900 res. Should get a good FPS at low to medium settings.

GTA IV should run fine on a 750Ti. Not sure about GTA V. I haven't seen any system requirements but it plays on last gen console so should be fine as well.

If you don't want to change your PSU, go for the 750. Low power requirements and doesn't need a six pin power connector from the PSU. I'd also get the 2Gb Ti version. You might only be using a 1400 x 900 monitor now, but you might have to change that in the future.

Also what games are you playing?

There does not appear to be much info about Codegen PSUs out there but most of what I have seen is pointing in the direction of Codegen being one of those generic bad brands you might want to replace ASAP.

So you probably do not want to use a R7-260 on it.
