I want to put a HIS Radeon 7870 2GB, GHz Edition 256-Bit and a Corsair VS 650 Watt Power Supply

PSU: http://www.jw.com.au/corsair-vs-series-vs650-650-watt-power-supply-p-13699

Graphics Card: http://www.jw.com.au/his-radeon-7870-2gb-p-13627

If you think. I could get something better let me know.

I live in Australia. Also my budget to upgrade is about $300. Also I do not have any local places to get my computer checked out. I would also like to buy from https://www.jw.com.au. I also don't mine buying from ebay or stores in australia

    In your shoes for a trouble free upgrade i'd move to a newer mid tower case with at least 2-3 120mm fans for intake/exhaust? These OEM casings have very limited ventilation and to be fair they are meant for home/office use not gaming?

    Perhaps

  2. Would it be hard to move everything to a new case?
  3. If u have never disassembled a pc before there are videos u can watch that may help but basically just with a screwdriver you can do it all ^^ The important thing is to spot where the motherboard is screwed to the standoffs on the case
