    Upgrading Help

    So my kid brother got this new PC http://www.amazon.co.uk/Zoostorm-787.../dp/B006ZINMP6
    and wants me to upgrade it for him.
    I know what to do when it comes to install parts and shit but I'm clueless about motherboards.
    What motherboard do I need to buy to support the i5, MSI geforce GTX640 MSI GeForce GT640 4096MB GDDR3 PCI-Express Graphics Card [N640-4GD3] and eventually a Nvidia Zotac GTX 760 http://www.amazon.co.uk/ZOTAC-ZT-704...s=nvidia+zotac
    Also a good power supply too
    Budget is between £150-£200 for both a good motherboard and power supply that match all requirements

    Thanks in advance bros

    Oh, the mobo should do the job.
    XFX 550W (P1-550S-XXB9) for £50 is a pretty good choice.

    ​Hell, I don't even know if that case can support a dedicated graphics card.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.
