I am considering upgrading my processor, and in doing so get a new case, motherboard, and RAM. My Graphics card and HDD are fine, I am currently just in the market for the below parts.

I have selected several items that i am looking at, and would appreciate opinions on the matter.

Current build

Processor- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Motherboard- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case is generic one from amazon, flimsy piece of trash aluminum.

Video Card- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HDD- Hitachi 1tb

PSU- 500w turbolink, i can't remember but i think it might have come with one of the items as a combo deal. Might need to replace in the future.



Here is a list of items that i want to upgrade to:

Case- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Motherboard- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Processor- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I would greatly appreciate feedback on the parts that i am considering. Will be keeping the power supply, video card, and HDD. The computer will be used primarily for gaming, so looking at what i have now and what i want, is the cost/benefit ratio worth an upgrade?

*Edited to include a new power supply*

Yea i agree a new power supply probably wouldn't be a bad idea. Any compatibility errrors or better items for the money that i should be looking at as well?

So i take it all the parts are in fact compatible? A simple yes or no will be more than sufficient.

Kind of in a hurry, some of these parts are on sale on newegg, want to snap em up with the discount.
