Hi, first off let me just say hello to you all, I'm a newbie here. I want to upgrade my PC to play simple MOBA like games (LoL, Starcraft II, and DOTA2) on high-ultra settings.

This is my current PC exactly: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And these are the two items that come in a bundle that I would like to install to improve the quality and performance: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

Will my Pc run right if I install these parts. Btw I will be doing this kind of thing for the first time in my life. I would like your opinions and feedback. Also I would like to remind you I am broke so I can't pitch in for a new motherboard or cpu or whatever extra, so please try not to suggest those kind of things. This is my first post on this site and if this thread is in the wrong place please tell me and I will move it. Thank you.

it is very hard to say as modern gpu pci 3.0 have some issues with old mobo .

it would probably be okay but............. why such a big power supply? buying something less expensive and using that extra money 2 buy 2 - 2gig sticks ( 4gig total ) of the same sort of memory you have would be a good idea.

Do you think they would be very bad and I shouldn't do it?

I didn't know it was too big really. I just chose it because it was in my budget and it was bundled so I think it would be cheaper than buying seperately, although i haven't checked. You think a big power supply would blow my pc' insides up?

you can buy a card, a less expensive but good power supply, and more memory for around the same money.

what memory is in your machine? there's a label on the ram.

Do you have any suggestions for a power supply and a graphics card? As for memory, Im not sure what brand. It would probably be generic but on the specs from the link I posted above it says 1GBx2 and my memory capacity is 2GB DDR2

missed that. the more i look at this ( and not knowing the actual motherboard ) and it's limitations ( cpu wise ) i could safely tell you to get a 6670 and save the rest of your money.
you have a 45watt, slow, single core processor. a low end power supply. board can only handle 2gigs of ram. matter of fact is it possible to just hang on to what you have ( $ ) and build a new machine ( or most of a machine ) later this year after you add to it? ( $ )
