upgrading hp pavillion desktop pc
Hello, I don't know much about building or upgrading PC's so I was hoping for advice on what parts to buy.
I currently have HP Pavilion a6745f Desktop PC, AMD Athlon Dual 5050e 2.6Ghz (stock), and I installed a Saphire Radeon HD 4670 1gb about a year ago, the rest is stock.
So I was looking at parts, this is what I found. I have a Phenom X4 9550 processor for really cheap bargain; coming already but I don't actually have it yet.
I am looking at Diamond Radeon HD6850 for gfx. I can get an Antec 450W PSU for 50$ or 650W for 80$. I was thinking do I need a CPU cooler with the processor I'm getting? If so, I was looking at GeminII S524 w/ 120mm fan but I really don't know what to get or if I will need one. I was planning on getting a new fan also.
Are there some things missing, or am I going overboard on anything. most of all is everything compatible (I tried my best).
