Capable of Blu-ray upgrade Tags: Prebuilt Systems Last response: July 8, 2010 2:20 PM in Systems Share rocks911 July 8, 2010 1:20:56 PM I'm looking to update my computer and am currently considering an HP Model HPE-350t available at Costco. Here are some stats: Power Supply: 300W Intel® Core™ i7-860 Processor at 2.8GHz 8MB cache 8GB DDR3-1333MHz SDRAM memory 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5450 Graphics Integrated 7.1 channel capable sound w/ front audio ports Total memory slots: 4 DIMMS 1 x PCIe x16 3x PCIe x1 1x MIniCard Slot Microsoft® Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) Could I install a Blu-ray in this?

Also, the 300W PSU might be a bit on the light side to handle everything. The motherboard may not have an extra SATA port or possibly even have any SATA ports. The case isn't as big of an issue as you could just replace the optical drive it comes with. If you absolutely want a BR drive, you should buy a prebuilt with it (or build one). m 0 l rocks911 July 8, 2010 2:20:15 PM Thanks, You're right, I'll find it pre-built. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
