Tags: MSI-Microstar Graphics Cards Motherboards Computer Product Last response: December 22, 2011 7:02 PM in Motherboards Share werty94 December 22, 2011 6:18:29 PM Hi, Im planning to upgrade my computer today, so I want to double check with you guys if its going to work. Im planning to keep my motherboard MSI G31TM-P21 Motherboard (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) and change my CPU and Video card. Now for that motherboard I know its compatible with Pentium Dual Core E6700 3.2GHz as it stated here (http://www.msi.com/product/mb/G31TM-P21.html#/?div=CPUS...). And the video card that im planning to buy is Radeon HD 6570 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...). Will my computer be able to handle this? Also my current power supply is Antec Basiq 350W, is that going to be a problem? So far my budget for right now is for CPU and Video card, not enough with PSU. Thanks, More about : finally upgrading ringzero December 22, 2011 6:35:10 PM According to Sapphire, that graphics card requires a minimum of a 400w power supply: http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1... werty94 December 22, 2011 6:44:23 PM Nvm, I found a power supply 500W for cheap. Just double checking: changing 350W to 500W PSU and adding Pentium Dual core E6700 and Radeon 6570 to my motherboard MSI-G31TM-P21 will be okay right?

I'm not expert on CPUs, but for the record, that looks like a mighty old processor. You might not actualize as much power from that 6570 as you'd like. werty94 December 22, 2011 7:02:07 PM Well, I know right. I think thats all im going to get for its socket. If I want a better CPU, im going to have to change my mobo. Anyhow, thanks for your help. Anyone else wanna confirm this? Thanks. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
