If your MB power connector is 24 pin (20+4) and you use the Intel graphics without overclocking, you're probably OK. Since you want the "K" version, one must assume it's for overclocking. It's just my opinion that it would be asking for trouble to do so.
Hello all, I am looking for some input on upgrading my PC. Current specs on the PC I built about 4 years ago:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
EVGA 132-CK-NF78 Motherboard
4G DDR2 Ram
Nvidia GTX560 Video Card
What I am thinking of getting:
Intel Core i5-2500K BX80623I52500
ASUS P8Z77-V LX Intel 7 Series Motherboard
16G Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9B Vengeance Desktop Memory Kit
Questions: 1. Can I use the same case, drives, and power supply I did with my old one?
2. Is this upgrade worth it?
3. Suggestions for other cost effective upgrades?
Thanks in advance - Paul
