Hi
I'v just ordered some parts to upgrade my old system amd xp 2500+ on asus a7v8x-x with 2gb ram and geforce FX5200. (ye very old system but i love it as it has never given me probs and it was the 1st ever build i did.) This build did everything i needed and even plays wow cata at about 15 - 20 fps (only game i play), but i need a upgrade now so i can play D3.

ok, here is what iv ordered.
1. NOVATECH MOTHERBOARD BUNDLE - INTEL CORE I3 2120 - 4GB DDR3 1333MHZ - INTEL H61 CHIPSET MOTHERBOARD ( motherboard is Gigabyte GA-H61M-S2PV)
2. KFA2 GEFORCE GT 440 1024MB GDDR3

I have a case, sata drive and PSU.

i know the case and HDD aint a problem. but will i be able to use the same psu? PSU is 500w and is working fine

What brand is the ps, and what is the 12v rail in amps?

psu model is LPK9-30

500W

COLOR = OUTPUT = WATT
ORANGE = +3.3V = 28A
RED = +5V = 38A
YELLOW = +12V = 20A
BLUE = -12V = 0.8A
PURPLE = +5VSB = 2A
BLACK = COM = RETURN
GREEN = PS-ON = REMOTE
GREY = PW-OK = P.G

500W TOTAL POWER ON 3.5V & +5V IS 215W MAX

You should be fine with your current ps. I wouldn't overclock the video with it; looks like a low end model that's not 80 plus certified.

Thanks for advice :wahoo: 
not thinking about oc, not much of a gamer as long as it plays D3, i know WOW will be ok with it.
