Hi all,

New here and new to building.

The XPS failed a few days ago and I have ordered an i5 3570k on a Gbyte GA-Z77X-D3H. Question is will I be able to use the psu from the XPS ? My main concern is the compatibility of the BTX style PSU with ATX board, will I be able to simply swap and plug in ?

Also looking at swapping other bits like the 2 cd drives, HDD's & sound card.

All will be going into a CM Storm Stryker case.

A little nervous about my first build, at first I thought piece of cake but now I'm not so sure.

Your help would be much appreciated ...

Thanks in advance.

Gary.

What do you mean it failed? It's most likely just the hard drive. Replace and you will be fine.

it's the gpu's one failed a few months back then the second recently. rather than fix thought I would treat myself tow new system but build myself.

Any thoughts on the PSU ?
