I have to buy a prebuilt from a store because my mom can't buy me stuff online (due to credit issues I think, not sure) but that's besides the point.

I found this: http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/hewlett-packard-hp-...

And was wondering, if I replaced the GPU with this: http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/pny-electronics-pny...

And put this PSU in: http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/dynex-dynex-520-wat...


This is the computer's motherboard: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c03...

Would this all work together? Would the GPU be compatible with the motherboard? Do you think the new GPU/PSU will fit in the case?

This should all work just fine. The PSU is sketchy, but it will all go together.

Are you 100% sure that it will fit in the case though? :/  I'm not sure of the size of the case and don't want to waste this money for nothing.

The GPU is tiny and shouldn't even make it passed the end of the MOBO. You should be good to go.

Please don't buy that PSU. I didn't know Best Buy has such terrible PSU selections and pricing. For $100 you could've bought a better a high end Corsair PSU. But anyway this one will work for you with the GTX 550 Ti.

Yeah, adding this GPU/PSU is putting me $170 over my $1000 budget which sort of sucks but oh well. As long as this GPU can run CoD4 on decent settings + Runescape on max settings I'm good. :p
