You have a 760ti graphics card that plugs into a PCIex16 slot - EVGA is a brand of graphics card, but you likely don't have that as it's a pre-built system, so you will have a generic version - I doubt you can upgrade your computer to any meaningful graphics card, as it's power and size limited

will either the card or the PSU fit inside the case, or are you just going to transplant everything into another case? I also doubt the 330W PSU will work well for either of those cards

It looks like the card uses about 170W according to benchmark sites. However OP need to open up the case and #1 make sure the card fits. Small formfactor cases like OP has usually means full size GPU cards won't fit. Also check to make sure you have the proper power connector and enough of them.
