To start off , I am not a good pc guy, and second of all im trying to upgrade from a slim pc case to a big one

And i don't know what parts can be reused or what else i need in order to have a functional new pc.

 

 PC parts:

CPU Intel core i5 2400 3.1ghz

RAM 12GB Dual Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz

Lenovo motherboard

Graphics card 512mb NVIDIA Geforce 310

Storage 465GB Seagate ST350031 2CS SCSI Disk Device (SATA)

Optical drive Optiarc DVD RW AD-7250H SCSI

Audio NVIDIA high def sound card

 

I think of using it for "gaming" even tho i dont aim for high prices for the parts

So any parts that would range from small to middle that would be great, thanks!

All of that should fit inside a normal tower. Don't know if the motherboard ports will line up perfectly with the back of the tower case. Oh, and you'll probably need a normal PSU (power supply unit), instead of the smallish one that comes in many slim cases.

Yep , it's that one, I remember now from the guy that I bought it from for like 200 dollars.

After i bought the pc i got the geforce 310 and got it in.

 

Gonna check out those threads too in a sec

 

The budget can be around 400 to 1000 dollars, im not gonna buy everything at once anyways, just gonna slowly build it up as time goes on.

How will I know if the motherboard ports will line up or not? do I gotta check beforehand on the case? or will I need to get some holes into it  :laughing:

And I guess i can get a PSU pretty easily.

What is the model number of the motherboard? Or, if unknown, what was the model number of the computer it came out of?
