only if you have DDR3 other yes to every thing else.

EDIT: you will need the key for the os so you can reinstall the OS.

With either choice, you'll need to get a new OS, but you could re use your RAM, considering that it is DDR3 - according to the MB specs.
You can also re use your HDD and GPU.

Also with it being an OEM machine, I'd consider changing the Power Supply to a quality unit, OEM machines tend to save money on cheap motherboards and power supplies.
I would DEFINITELY change the PSU if you plan on adding a more powerful GPU in the future.

EDIT:
Having googled your machine, it looks to be an odd form factor, and it doesn't looks like micro ATX is compatible, even thought that's what your motherboard specs say.

Could you confirm that this is (roughly) your system?

that looks to be the same unit.

the PSU is only 220w i planned on transferring everything to a new case. think im gonna get a cheap 1155 mobo then go from there, i will have room to upgrade from there.

thinking about starting with something like this.
http://pcpartpicker.com/user/wood./saved/1Jcw

I have the RAM(DDR3), graphics card, 500gHD, and a new LG dvd drive, that i would transfer.

then i would just need to get a new case, psu, mobo and cpu + OS correct?

Have you any experience with Linux? If you want to save some bucks on the OS, check out Ubuntu and Linux Mint. They're free, and great Linux alternatives for traditional Windows users.

Everything there looks great, except i would go for a better quality PSU.

i have never tried linux, like said i have basically no in depth computer experience. im willing to try new things though. if its simple to use and can use my same programs such as media players and google chrome for browsing. unless im missing out on something there too. lol

thanks for the reply.

450w quality > 500w low quality

appreciate that. trying to read up on all the components and quality brands vs just CHEAP.

hows this look now?
http://pcpartpicker.com/user/wood./saved/1Jcw

if i wanted to make the jump to haswell could i go with something like this? about a 75 dollar more initial investment? same psu and case, but 1150mobo and cpu.

thanks again everyone for their input, this forum is great. learning a lot.

Would you feel good with more than one computer? You state you are just learning to overclock. The Gigabyte EP45-UD3P is a great learning board ( you will still need more modern equipment for the tasks you are attempting).I would not feel good with just one rig and a EP45-UD3P with a Q6600 (G0 stepping) and memory can be had for not much more over 200.00. An extreme number of processors are compatible with this board and the hours of learning enjoyment are priceless.

If you're going for a full system upgrade, then spend the extra money and do this configuration.

If you're mainly just looking for video playback that isn't choppy and nothing else, then you might as well just drop a C2D into your existing machine and be done with it. That can do the job just as well as that i3, for a lot less money. Heck, I can play back 720p and even 1080p (although the screen doesn't go that high) on my laptop with a 2 GHz mobile C2D. The i3 is nothing but a faster dual-core at a time when quad-core is becoming the standard. It's really only a good value as a cheap gaming CPU now, because relatively few games need more than two cores.

The Haswell rig is going to last you a lot longer and give you a lot more capability. It's worth the money.

Which media players do you use? You should be able to use them on Linux using WINE, but Linux distros have their own built in native media players that are really quite good. All you might need to do is download a couple of codecs that aren't included in the distros. I agree with everyone else, don't get an i3. I'm not a big fan of Haswell, but the socket *should* be the torch bearer for Intel for the for seeable future. Other than that, you're a prime candidate for one of AMD's APUs.

I have a laptop also, so i would be okay if this was down for a bit.

i think this is actually what i want to do. gonna order a case and PSU tonight I think, then next week, i actually think ill just get a better mobo, and processor, then i can just expand from there, upgrading graphics and memory. the mobo is the MSI z87 gd65 gaming board. then probably just jump to the 4670k

i am mainly just using it for video editing, like i said, but i would like to be able to start playing with overclocking and maybe some more avdanced gaming. issue right now is that Im not provided a good enough internet service at my house, moving soon so i can get on with charter though... lol

To be honest i use iTunes to play my music, then Media Player Classic to play video (as it seems to play them the best) so im not to hip to video editing programs or good music players. im open to try new things. i just dont know whats available.
