I have a Lenovo idea centre K410 - 57313412 it has an Intel Core i3-2130 3.40GHz and has 1 PCI Express x 16 slot and can have a max of 8gb memory. Ive never worked on a computer but wanted to know if i could put

-Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I73770

-G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

-CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

and if that all works what would be a good graphics card to play great graphics on sims 3 and guild wars 2 and world of warcraft?

To do your computer justice.. I recommend nothing less than a GTX660ti. It will allow you to max out any games on the market right now and will run like a charm in your computer. And aside from that processor you'll be able to fit the rest of your upgrades in there. The reason why you can't install that processor is that its any Ivy Bridge CPU and only p67 or z68 motherboards can support the ivy bridge CPU's with a bios update. If you have one of those motherboards then go ahead!

Thank you i will look into that is looks like an awsome graphics card.
Here is my system info is there any type of cpu i can install that is an upgrade such as i5 or i7?

i found this good reviews

-Intel Core i5-2310 Sandy Bridge 2.9GHz (3.2GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I52310

found out that my cpu is a sandy bridge and has a LGA socket 1155 so i think it will work?
