As for the remaining money you can get a i7 2600k and a 212 evo and overclock the hell out of it if you plan to upgrade your cpu.But I'm not sure how much a i7 2600k might cost so you might want to sell your i5 and gtx 750 ti if you have no use for it

He said that he could stretch a little, please read the post again.

A 411 euro GPU is more than stretching it

Your CPU is adequate. Not ideal, but adequate. It's a hair more powerful than the Athlon X4 860k which is by most considered the go to processor for budget gaming and the base standard for "Good enough". A CPU upgrade is needless unless you can get an i7-3770K for cheap so there's really no point as the improvement would be marginal at best unless you're willing to get said processor and overclock it.

Your power supply is a 600 watt. Your processor has a 77 watt TDP and the video card a 275 watt TDP. At most your other systems will draw probably 100 or so watts.

You have way more than enough overheard to support it.
