Upgrading graphics card and power supply

I have an HP p7-1414 and I want to upgrade the power supply and video card. I found this bundle on Newegg.com and I want to know if it will work with my computer. Will this bundle work and will it be fairly easy to install?

Here is the bundle: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1519668

Here is some info on my computer: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c03499587#N721

    Pci-e is backwards compatible, Pci-e 3.0 cards work just fine in 3.0 ports and vice versa.
  3. It's too big , has to be this size.

    5.9 x 5.5 x 3.4 inches

    The unit below will fit , it's the exact same size.

    For $300 you could get a better video card and still get a good PSU.

  6. Wow you guys are fast. Still no response on the other websites I used. Thanks I will look into those other options.
  7. I posted the ALMOST the same combo , you wanted above at a $100.00 savings.

    Good luck with your search.

    The 550w XFX IS A GREAT SUPPLY.
  8. The 760 , I have 2 of the MSI 760'S.

    Get this great setup.
  10. Ok. Is the cheaper graphics card a big step down or is it not going to be insanely noticeable. I dont make a lot of money so cheap is good but only if its still worth it.
  11. It's not a huge step down , the 660 is still a real decent card.

    Get the other combo I posted it saves you $100.00.
  12. The 660 and the XFX?
  13. I have the 760 and its a very nice card! Would highly recommend it for its price performance ratio
  14. The 660 and the XFX?

    Yes , for the price it's a great combo.
  15. Great, will do. Thanks a lot.
  16. Your welcome, thanks for posting.
  17. Just figured I should give an update as to what I decided to do. I ended up after looking at everyones reccomendations on going with a GTX 760 for my graphics card. I went with the EVGA GTX 760 Superclocked with the ACX Cooler. (Link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130932 ). As for the power supply I went with the XFX Core Edition 550W that was reccomended to me (Link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207013 ). Thanks a lot for the help guys. This should be a big increase in performance.
