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?Ite...

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

Pci-e is backwards compatible, Pci-e 3.0 cards work just fine in 3.0 ports and vice versa.

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

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.

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.

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=N82E168... ). 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=N82E168... ). Thanks a lot for the help guys. This should be a big increase in performance.
