M93P Project

2016-02-24, 4:29 AM

Hi everybody.

Im wondering n what to do, about a project I have in mind with a M93P server i just get at a good price.

 

Well as i knew before this machine have good capabilities with a few downsides to get a good upgrade, first of all I want to get my M93P with an I7 4770 cpu, a upgrade to a gaming PC and I want to know how difficult this can be.

 

I know the PSU of this machine is a 280w 80Plus Bronze little PSU, so first of all I'm thinking on getting a 500 or 600 watts PSU from Corsair or CM, then add a Gtx 960 or a GTX 970 video card (dunno well if the card will fit in the case). Then add extra Ram (4x2=8Gb stock) maybe another 2 4Gb slots to make 16GB of RAM.

 

Know problems: The Motherboard (which i think is Intel) have just 12 or 14 connectors to the main supply of the motherboard, so I will need an adapter to get the new high power PSU running.

The GTX 960 or 970 (im looking for the Gigabyte or Asus versions) which are kinda large 20cm to Asus version and 30cm to Gigabyte version, so i dunno if they will fit in the tower case or also I'm gonna need a new case mount everything there.

 

So what do you think? Should I go for this project? Or throw this machine and start a new made one?

 

Greetings! :smileyhappy:

Excuse the delay.  

 

Please use the search engine above, there a numerous threads with good, detailed information on power supply and graphics upgrades.   Search also under 'M92' as the two are similar. 

 

If you then have specific questions, post them in those threads.   Thank you and GL.
