Ok, it has taken me a couple of days, but with the help of a friend I have been able to figure out an affordable build that should be compatible. It has kind of escalated, I originally only wanted to swap out the GPU and CPU, but my current rig is more outdated than I thought.
Getting a new CPU required a new MoBo, getting a new MoBo required getting getting new RAM and a new PSU etc.
So here is the current build:
Processor: AMD Phenom II 950 x4 3.5GHz (Black)
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 5850 1Gb
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-770T-D3L AMD 770 Socket AM3 8 Channel Audio ATX
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4Gb DDR3 (2x2Gb)
Monitor: Acer V223WEObd LCD 22" 1680x1050/60Hz
With a bit of tweaking this is still within my budget, all that is left now before I can place my orders is the PSU.
I don't know anything about the compatability of the PSU, or how to find out what cables it should have and how many, all I know is that I need 500W or more to power the components of the PC.
The only one I have found so far is this one:
It looks good, and it's affordable, but I have no idea what kind of power connections it has.
Is it safe to assume it will have everything my parts need?
