Hello all. I have a friend who is upgrading a PC. We are just about ready to order our final part. We already made the grave mistake of not checking the old motherboards compatibility, so I would like to triple check with some of you guys that all of this will be compatible.
8 GB RAM
300 W PSU (100V-240V)
So those are the specs. However, obviously I am here because I have a few concerns. Unfortunately, I am not very bright in the field of processors. For starters, if we compare the old PC's processor, is that the same one as the link provided? I am not sure due to the "i7-2600K."
Second, will the pins fit into the new motherboard?
Lastly, will everything fit? It's a mid-size ATX case, but as far as my knowledge goes, that could mean anything.
I understand that it's usually best to just start off with a new everything, but we have very little money so we are trying to save as best we can. Maybe you guys have some suggestions?
Hopefully I am not missing anything. I did tons of research, as I can't mess anything up due to a tight budget. Hopefully you guys can verify those things for me.
I appreciate your time and patience helping me here. It really means a lot. Feel free to ask any concerning questions.
