Will This Upgrade Work?
Hey there guys. I've been wanting to get a new desktop for some time now. I don't use it much, but mine is a HP Pavilion a535w. Made in 2004 and running on XP Home Edition. It's hard drive is nearly full at a whopping 75GB and the processor and everything else is outdated and old. We need to either buy a new one or upgrade this one soon because my parents need a better computer to do their stuff and I want to have a secondary computer I can do a little light gaming on from time to time. I looked into it, and replacing nearly all of the internal parts is cheaper than buying a new one that would be just as good. So I want to buy all new parts and just install them in the same case. Here's the parts:
Processor: AMD FX-4170 Zambezi 4.2GHz Quad-Core, Socket AM3+
Motherboard: Biostar A880 GZ AM3+ 880G SATA 6GB/s, HDMI, Micro ATX
Graphics: MSI R6570 - MD2GD3/LP Radeon HD 6570, 2GB
HDD: Western Digital VelociRaptor WD3000HLHX, 300GB, 10000rpm, 3.5"
RAM: SPECTEK 8GB 240-pin DDR3 RAM
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
So is that all I will need to upgrade? Do I need to buy a new case fan or CPU fan? Heat sync? Case? Change any parts due to incompatibility? Let me know ASAP. I can give links to each item as needed. Thanks for the help guys.
