Upgrade Compaq Presario SR5707C Desktop

I would like to build on what I have and upgrade Compaq Presario SR5707C Desktop. I would like to change the mother to ASUS M5A78L-M LX. I know I will need new operating system, memory and power supply but can I use a AMD Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition , GeForce 9500 GT .(I have the CPU, graphics card and a 450w power supply ) I would like to use as much of the my current PC as possible and buy new as I can afford.

  1. The 7850 cpu is am2, which won't work with ddr3 ram. I recommend the 965 and this board from newegg:

    I've used both the ram and board I recommended. They're excellent choices and a good value.

    Hello would it work with a ASRock A785GM-LE that one looks like I can use my DDR2 :ange:
  3. Yes. The 965 works on your old motherboard. It's much faster than the 7850.
  4. One thing that makes the 7850 better then the 965, is that I already own one. What I am trying to do is not spend money I dont have. What I do have is (one Compaq Presario SR5707C Desktop PC with AMD Athlon X2 4850e - ADH4850IAA5DO Two DDR2 2GB, GeForce 9600 GT and 450w power supply) This is the PC my son uses, he games online and watches online video.

    I also have a HP Pavilion Media Center TV m7640n Desktop with AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ - ADO5000IAA5CZ
    , Four DDR2 1GB, GeForce 9500 GT and a 500w power supply. I play some online games but mostly run CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5

    I also have a AMD Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition - AD785ZWCJ2BGH and a second GeForce 9500 GT

    On the Compaq Presario SR5707C Desktop I will add a ASRock A770CrossFire and a AMD Phenom II X4 830 - HDX830WFK4DGM

    Providing that will work, On the HP Pavilion Media Center TV m7640n I will add a ASRock A770CrossFire and one of the CPUs I already own which one would be best

    AMD Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition - AD785ZWCJ2BGH


    AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ - ADO5000IAA5CZ


    AMD Athlon X2 4850e - ADH4850IAA5DO


    Thanks :pt1cable:
