I want to upgrade my family computer. It is a Lenovo m83 (Think Center). I mostly play Csgo. Right now I am only getting 50-80 fps on lowest graphics.
Specs are:
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Intel Core i5 4570 @ 3.20GHz
8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 799MHz
Motherboard: LENOVO SHARKBAY (SOCKET 0)
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6570
I want to upgrade the default Power supply (270W) to a 600w and the graphics card. I am not sure if my computer can only upgrade with certain brands or how it works. What power supply and graphics card should I get.Links to the products on newegg would be appreciated.

with a gold standard cpu like that, it is kind of defeating that it is limited to a compact form factor. there are nice power supplies made by seasonic and silverstone for that kind of application, but then, the video card options are limited.. the new pascal nvidia line-up is going to be out soon, but until then, the maxwell  mid-range cards are over-penetrating that market niche with their 750ti..like this one..

and check these power supplies out... think the form factor is "TFX" , but newegg is insisting that  silverstone offers SFX only. at least the way i am reading into it..

and then seasonic has its offering...TFX..

anyway, that form factor is limited with the caliber of power supply that will apply and function, i think the 350 watt range is about it...but i shall read on...

 

ever thought of transferring the interior components over to a micro-atx case? that would be the best .i have heard of users doing it, i haven't yet..

With the GTx 750 would I still need to upgrade the 270W power supply? Or would that suffice?

a stock lenovo power supply,,hmmmm. i would think about 12v amps. you should be around 14 or so with that stock unit, that is kind of pushing it.  some users may take that chance, i wouldn't. i would get the 350 seasonic unit...that thing is testing 18 amps x2 @+12v

 

  you also have that i-5 to think about, even though it is super efficient, it might send that stock power supply over the edge if coupled with the 750 ti and pushing maximum 3d sensual effects.
