Upgrading my 720 XPS H2C Tags: Homebuilt XPS Systems Last response: May 20, 2010 9:34 PM in Systems Share Anonymous a b B Homebuilt system May 20, 2010 7:27:24 AM I want to upgrade my 720 XPS H2C It's currently running 680i proprietary chipset and PSU along with a QX6800 quad core processor I wanted to upgrade the Mobo and CPU and I am aiming at the P6X58D Premium from Asus and a 930 i7. I think the PSU is proprietary as well and I'll need to swap that out for another. With above stated my questions are 1/ has anyone actually swapped the mobo out of an XPS 720 H2C and put in another Mobo, any complications? 2/ Will the Asus board run the 8800 GTX's ok? 3/ I'd prefer to keep the case, cooling system, cd drives, etc. as I don't see the need for a swap out 4/ any other advice? I figure the whole build will run me about 1k US 300 CPU 300 Mobo 200-300 RAM 100-150 for new PSU. Any comments, advice, or cautionary tales would be much appreciated.

Even a bad or broken ATX mobo will let you see if all the holes and rear ports line up properly. Ask any pc repair shop for any old/fried ATX mobo Just to test the fit. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
