I think personally you don't need to spend that much on an upgrade, unless you intend to play cyberpunk 2077 at 4k on max settings. ;)
Even then your Titan X is good to go at 1440p with no RTX with said game.

Replacing your PSU would depend on how old it is, however it may have been the cause of your old PC expiring. Search for PSU paperclip test on YouTube for instruction to see if it works. if it doesnt, then check your purchase date & length of warranty as you may be able to replace it with corsair.

RAM should be OK. Case is good if a little bit old. Case fans may need replacing.
