Ideacentre 720-18 - Upgrading my PC, Help please

Hi, I'm new to the forums and I'd like to upgrade my Lenovo desktop PC, It's an Ideacentre 720-18 with a Ryzen 3 1200 CPU, 8GB RAM, 400W PSU, RX 560 and non-overclockable motherboard.

(I'm also completely new to upgrading computers, and I'm buying parts for someone else to install them for me)

 

Is the case ATX or micro ATX?

 

Can the PSU be upgraded to this :    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CP-9020131-UK-TX750M-Semi-Modular-Supply/dp/B06X9K8TK6/ref=sr_1_3?i...

 

Will this graphics card fit :    https://www.amazon.co.uk/SAPPHIRE-Radeon-NITRO-2xHDMI-Graphics/dp/B071R7BTJL/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&...

 

Will motherboard be compatible :    https://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-GAMING-Ryzen-Athlon-Motherboard/dp/B06Y46DBF4/ref=sr_1_8?s=computers&ie...

 

If they aren't compatible, Which alternative parts can I put in?

Answers would be really appreciated

Thanks

Hi mark7490!

 

Welcome to the community forums.

 

You may need to measure the clearance of the gap between the casing to the CPU first of your desktop before purchasing aftermarket cooling fan. It may not be compatible because the casing that we use are OEM and not always standard.

I have measured and I think it should fit as it is a compact cooler, Now is the case ATX or micro ATX, I'm planning to upgrade the motherboard as the one on board isn't overclockable.

 

Oh and will a normal power supply fit? :   https://www.amazon.co.uk/EVGA-Modular-Power-Supply-210-GQ-0750-V3/dp/B017RO39TK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&q...

 

Thanks
