So I have core 2 duo E7400, 4GB of RAM, and 500GB HDD. I planning to upgrade the CPU to core 2 quad Q9500, 8GB of RAM, and 240GB SSD. The motherboard I have right now is gigabyte GA-P41T-D3P, can I upgrade my cpu, ram, and storage to what i plan? or my motherboard cannot handle that?

I had a look at the CPU support list for the motherboard

https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-P41T-D3P-rev-13/support#support-cpu

looks like the Q9500 is indeed on the list.

 

here is the specs for general support:

"up to 8GB" so if you have 64 bit windows you're good to go.

 

any old PC is good with an SSD as long as it has SATA. No worries there.

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed 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 mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad
