Re: Need Help Upgrading Son's Computer

You sure it is a i3-330 ??..

You could double check by going to Control Panel, System, Processor.

HP Pavilion p7-1110 Desktop PC Product Specifications


Not all the front panel stuff would work on the new tower. I dont think it has enough Front Panel plug to the mainboard.

The new case top shows what I believe it to be 3 x USB 2.0, and 1 x USB 3.0

Looking at the mainboard layout. It only has 2 F_Panel USB 2.0.


That PSU you selected isn't going to work. The problem that it only has 1 pcie 6pin.(1 x 6pin PCI-Express Connectors)

The HD7950 requires 2 x 6pin. »www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/···0.aspx#2

The "330" I posted was a poorly typed 3.3 Ghz designation.

If some of the front panel USB connections on the new tower don't work, that's not a deal breaker - or is there something I'm missing/missunderstanding? The real problem seems to be the lack of PCI Express connectors. I'm open to suggestions if you know of an alternate.

BTW - I haven't built a PC in about 5 years. I'm hoping its no more difficult than that ATX build.
