My desktop (Silverstone case, Asus p7p55d, Intel i7, 8GB RAM,HD7950,Corsair H100i) died recently when I lost the HD and motherboard. Trying get new working desktop for best value possible that can use any/all parts from old desktop. Have laptop but struggles with gaming. HoTS, Warframe, SC2, Steam, etc. I looked at refurbished dekstops, but they all had older CPU's. I found MSI's Nightblade barebone setup and like it.

Some questions:

 

1. Anyone have confirmation if Asus HD7950 would fit?

2. Is PSU upgradable? Is it good enough?

3. Anyone use a MSI barebones before? How is general build quality?

 

Anyone have any other suggestions? Another barebones? Should I try a refurbished workstation or is Xeon non optimal?Should I just build from ground up? I have built many systems, I am just poor at this moment. Budget is 400ish leaving around 150$ for HDD or SSD.

Takes laptop memory and CPU puts me over budget. Back to the drawing board. :-(

I recommend building your own PC. What is your old cpu? You may be able to use your old case, psu, gpu, cpu and ram and just replace your HD and motherboard.

Thank you for the response. I am now considering what parts to buy but will give the details in a new thread(since I can't edit OP) I will do shortly on the subject. My main question is to go with the 1150 or 1151 CPU socket.
