I have been thinking about upgrading my HP Computer to make it a gaming rig. I am new to this, but from the research I have done, I think these are the parts I want to get (See Specs Below). I am going to transfer all the hardware into a Cooler Mater case and replace the GPU and power supply. Basically, can I do this? Will it be compatible and will anything be bottle necked? Thanks

I am trying to learn more about computers, so can you explain why I should get a 550-600 PSU?

because they are nice spot for price/performance. even hardcore gamers hardly need above 700W. mostly just stay with 600W. you could spend more to SSD or upgrade the CPU
