Hey!

 

I was wondering if i can upgrade my pc with GeForce GTX 750ti, Cooler Master v750 750w in theHP-Pavilion p6-2490eo without any other problems.

 

i got a Joshua-H61-uATX Mobo, i7 3770 socket-LGA 1155, 6 GB memory, Internal 300W (100V-240V) and a Nvidia GeForce GT 630(Changing this).

If there is some other components or a case that fits uATX Mobo i should replace, then tell me. 16x16_smiley-tongue.gif My budget for this project is 400 dollars. 

 

thank you!

You probably can but I recommend better PSU. Also GTX 750 Ti is not good choice as it generally has no 6-pin power connector. RX 480 custom is better choice.

That RX was expensive lol :P, but is it compatible with my mobo?

GTX 750 Ti is risky as it draws all power from PCI Express slot and motherboard is not very high quality one. So something with external power connector recommended. Also you don't need 750W PSU, 550W is more than enough. I also recommend SSD drive.

Yeah, the only problem with my motherboard is that is it PCI 2.0 Express i think

I've found some components, but i wonder if it will work together. I'll use the i7 3770 on this build if it work out.

Oh yeah, this PCI Express 2.0 problem again. Well, with new motherboard solves that problem.

 

You don't need 750W PSU and GTX 750 Ti is somewhat expensive considering price/performance ratio. Also that card has no 6-pin PCI Express power connector. That is not advantage at all.

Yes, you can. I think that RX 460 or 470 will offer much better price/performance ratio though when released. On the other hand those cards may mean R9 380 price goes down...

Can i use the components under but, changing the 750ti with an Radeon 380 and the 750w with a 650w?

a total price of: 532 dollars.

i know i used 132 more dollars than my budget, but i forgot that i needed a ssd and a cpu cooler (added the cpu cooler later).

Now wait... Is drawing all the power from the motherboard a problem? Because the RX 480 doesn't meet motherboard power specs and would be a much bigger problem than a 750ti.

Plus all the new drivers are not so great.

Not bigger but smaller because RX 480 can draw more power from PSU but 750Ti cannot.
