Hi

I'm hoping to make my first forray into PC building by starting with an easy upgrade of my current Dell Inspiron 620MT.

I've done a bit of research, and understand that I need to make sure that the powersupply will be sufficient, and that the graphics card needs to be a PCI card (to match the mobo).

But I was hoping to run my plan past you guys to see what you think before I put the orders through.

So here's my current set-up:

Mobo: Dell Inspiron 620MT motherboard.
Powersource: 300W
Processor: Core i3 2120

What I'm planning on installing:

Powersource:

Corsair 500W

Graphics card:

Asus GTX 770 Nvidia GeForce DirectCU II OC 2GB GDDR5

And possibly a RAM upgrade as well.

What do you guys think?

How much ram do you have and what speed?

Don't know what kind of case you have, but make sure you have sufficient airflow (intake and exhaust)

Hi - my RAM is 4gigs of DDR3.

It's a relatively roomy case with a decent exhaust - should be ok.
