Hey guys! I recently stumbled across LTT after searching for computer builds because my laptop motherboard kicked the bucket. I had an Asus 501UX. Is there any way to take the (still good) i7 processor, nvidia graphics card, and ssd out of the laptop and slap it into a pc case? I'm on an extremely tight budget and have no computer right now, so this is pretty much my only solution.  I'm very new to diy computers, so any help is appreciated! Thanks!

You can take the SSD out most likely, there might be an issue, but it's very probable. The CPU and GPU are 99% not going to be able to be recovered, in laptops they're usually soldered into the motherboard and removing them is next to impossible, unfortunately.

The CPU is soldered to the mobo, so that's a no. It also doesn't look like the GPU is an MXM-card, so that'd also be a no. That leaves only the SSD, which you can take out and use elsewhere, if you wish.

The only thing you can probably save from that laptop is the SSD.

What would be the purpose of moving that stuff to a case if it were possible? You wouldn't gain performance just by having it in a new box. Ideally you'd save up and buy new parts that perform better.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)
