Upgrade help..

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys I'm new to the concept of building systems. I'm wondering if I could get a little help/suggestion from you guys. So here is the thing. I currently have a relatively old system Acer Aspire M1610 and am planning to do some upgrades on it. I really have no idea if everything that I put together will work. I'm also not thinking right now of upgrading the motherboard and buying a new case but I specifically chose GT 640 as the GPU just in case I upgrade the motherboard and case. Just want to max out the motherboard right now. I would like to know if the upgraded build would be possible. biggrin.gif

Current build:

Motherboard: Stock
Processor: Intel E2160 1.8GHz
RAM: 4GB 800 MHz DDR 2
Graphics card: Nvidia 9500 GT
Cooling: Stock
PSU: Stock

Upgraded build:

Motherboard: Stock
Processor: Intel E5800 3.2GHz
RAM: 4GB 800 MHz DDR 2
Graphics card: Nvidia GT 640 2GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16
Cooling: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
PSU: Stock

Questions:

1) Will the stock PSU work or will I need to upgrade it to 300W?
2) Will the Hyper 212 Plus fit in the stock case?

What are you trying to do with this build? As for your questions:
1) the PSU should be fine
2) What do you need the 212 Plus for exactly?

Just for casual gaming like a mid-set Dota 2. I have a deal with this guy who have a E5800 proc. which has no stock fan. BTW, my casing is the stock one also

Honestly, you could just get a small <$10 cooler that would work adequately. I don't know what the demands of Dota are, but I would imagine it could potentially run decently.
