Solved Is my motherboard ok for transferral to a gaming setup...

Specs: Windows 7
I started with an HP Pavilion Elite HPE 510y. Later i upgraded my video card to a PNY gtx 560 and a 600w power supply. Im purchasing a nice gaming case and 1000w power supply and am planning on transferring everything in to the new case. So is my "amidios 686" motherboad that came stock in my hp worthy of keeping and transferring to the new case?? If not, what should i get, and what will my AMD Phenom II 1055T six-core be compadable with.

Please help.. new to all of this! thanks...

✔ Best Answer
No need for new motherboard, the foxconn board(micro ATX) will fit fine into any ATX case.
Why did u purchase 1000 watts PSU?

You know the real meaning of peace only if you have been through the war.

What was the point of changing the case? Personally, I think what you're doing is a complete waste of money. It's still an HP no matter how you wrap it up. And as kuwese asked, why would you need a 1000W PSU? A decent quality name brand unit with a single high amperage +12v rail will cost at least $100 alone, then you have the cost of the case to factor in. Newegg only lists one case/1000W PSU combo & it sells for $400 + shipping. Yikes. I don't know about you, but I've paid less than that for cars, lol.
