Hey guys,
I would like to be able to upgrade my graphics card to the NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1080 but not being very skilled under the case I dunno where to start.
At the moment I have one monitor hooked up with Display port then I have a second monitor hooked up via a VGA to DVI-I adaptor since it only supports VGA.
I have a feeling that I would most likely have to upgrade my PSU for this but like I said I dunno where to begin.
So that's what I'm looking at but if you guys have other better suggestion please let me know :)
Thanks.

PSU: PowerLogic Magnum Pro 375X 750W
Motherboard: MSI Military Class 4 H97M-E35
Ram: ADATA Premier DDR3L 1600 PC3l-12800 8GB
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 CPU @3.60GHz 3601 Mhz, 4 Core(s) 8 Logical processors.
OS: Windows 10 Home 64 Bit

I would get a better quality PSU first. Something around 600w from Seasonic/Superflower/XFX/EVGA should do fine.

The EVGA G2 PSUs seem good value for money right now.

Bear in mind that 1000 series GPUs dont support VGA/DVI-I output. so you would need a active adapter to use VGA on a new gpu.

Yeah I know but I will get that one the higher the better I say :), also can you link me a VGA to HDMI active adaptor?
that way if get the Nvidia Geforce gtx 1080 I will be able to use both monitors one using the adaptor and the main monitor using display port :)
and one last thing if I choice to not get the 1080 card due to price what is the next best card price wise :)
and again thank you for all your help. I would need a card that has HDMI and a display port

so in conclusion if I buy the EVGA-SuperNOVA-750-G2-80-GOLD-Fully-Modular-750W-Power-Supply-220-G2-0750-XR PSU, then buy that adaptor you linked me which is a DVI-D to VGA

I could use it with this card:

which has a DVI-D port which is could use to connect my VGA monitor by your active adaptor you linked me
and a Display Port or HDMI for my main monitor?

and again Thank you.
