As the GPU in my 5-6yr old desktop PC is showing signs of degradation I thought perhaps I could just replace it and therefore keep my costs to a minimum but after the replies I got from my previous thread I decided it may be better just to try another solution altogether. There is nothing wrong with the SSD, HDD, Optical DVD ROM drive or the power source in my present PC. If I bought a new modern motherboard, CPU and GPU would this be feasible?. I did some searching on the Ebuyer site and came up with the following.Access DeniedAccess DeniedAccess Denied
Would these components be compatible and if so would I have to reinstall my copy of Windows 7 or would it be a matter of plug and play so to speak?.
