First determine your budget on upgrades.

Second - a new PSU is required.

But this will have cause some issues. You motherboard has non-standard psu connectors. You'll need to find appropriate adapter to connect standard psu.

Next - a new graphics card. Possible choices depend on your budget (and also on wattage of your PSU).
So with a budget for upgrades of roughly 500 canadian for a PSU, Motherboard, and GPU. Do you think it would be worth it or would I be better off spending a couple grand on a brand new one.

I think you cant get more life out of your current system. Upgrade the psu as needed, and also the graphics card to something like a 1660gtx ti.
