Solved Motherboard Compatibility/ PSU Compatibility

Specs: Windows 10, i3 6100T/ 8 GB DDR4

I bought the wrong motherboard but have one in a HP computer. I was going to take it out and place it in my new case and return the old one, is it possible? Motherboard

I have that motherboard paired with 8 gb of DDr4 RAM and a G4560 3.5 Ghz processor.

And a 450 Watt powersupply with a GTX 1050.

Basically I want to put the HP monitor into my new case with my 450 wat power supply and new GPU until my other motherboard comes to put my G4560 in

"my 450 wat power supply"

We need to know make/model & amperage specs. Why are you changing boards?

It's a EVGA 430 Watt power supply, and i'm switching motherboards because I was building a gaming PC and ordered the wrong one, but I have one at home in a HP called the "hamar" it takes the same socket but idk if my G4560 is compatible with it, if not I also have a I3 6100t I can keep inside of it. Heres the motherboard

✔ Best Answer
There's very little performance difference between the i3-6100T & the Pentium G4560. If anything, the i3 is probably slightly better. Not worth switching them out. Besides, if you look at the motherboard specs, the supported processors are 35W TDP; the G4560 is 54W. What board are you considering upgrading to? One that supports overclocking? It's not worth getting a board just so you can run the G4560. And it's not worth switching cases if the PSU & video card will work in the HP case.
