What you can do is move the installation to where steam installs it to. Use to find the folder name. If done correctly, when you install on steam it will discover existing files and only update what is different.

I'm not sure about MKX but usually most games can be activated on steam by entering the CD/DVD key on steam. This will then tie the game to your steam account. There are still a few games that have both a steam and non-steam version. In that case you have to buy the steam version to get a steam key. Before you buy it again see if the key will activate on steam.

Once you activate the game copy your original install into the steam/common/steamapps folder. If you're lucky you might not have to re-download the entire game, only the updated steam pieces.
