I am looking at upcycling an HP M7635.uk and looking for some advice on component recommendations etc. It is a computer which was owned by my parents and I suspect either the power supply has blown or the motherboard has stopped working. As a rough upgrade spec:
Processor- Quad Core
HD- 256 GB SSD (I have network storage for most of my data as I have an HP Micro Server)
OS- Windows 7 64 Bit
Motherboard- I would assume would need to change to accommodate a better CPU
PSU- Reuse Original PSU If not blown If blown then replace it with what?
Reuse the TV Tuner Card from original machine
Reuse DVD Drive from original machine
Case- Reuse Original Case
Connectivity- Reuse Original SD Card reader
Wifi- Must be Wifi Compatible.
Reasonable Gaming PC
Ability to support dual monitor (2 screens at 1920 x 1080 through DVI/HDMI)
Ability to use the HP personal media drive bay
Readily available current and new components (not used ones).
Budget of £500 or less?
I have concerns about compatibility of components and thermal management.
Thank you in advance for your advice.
