Would these things work together?

Hey guys,

I just wanted to know if this computer:

Would be able to use these new components as it uses an APU but has expansion slots:

Or even the r9 270x

Thanks very much.

    As long as your motherboard has a pci-e slot, you can use any gpu that will fit within the confines of your case provided you have the correct psu connectors. You also have the right idea in replacing the psu.

    Yeah it has a PCIe Slot (x1) x 3 and a PCI3 Slot (x16) x 1
    What happens to be the difference by the way?
    And thanks for the reply.

    PCI-e 1 is typically used for add in cards like wifi, sound, etc. PCI-e 16 has more data lanes and is used for graphics.
