The 750 ti gets all of its power from the motherboard. It looks like your cpu uses up to 95 watts and the 750 ti uses about 60 watts, so you should be fine with your power supply. As long as the PCIE 16x slot your motherboard has provides that you should be fine. You could also go up to a 1050 ti (which also gets its power from the motherboard).

What happened to the back of the PC?

You could use a low-profile GTX 750 Ti on it, but you probably can't lock it since the back of your PC is really badly bent.
