    Upgrading Help

    So my kid brother got this new PC https://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 https://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

    Depends on which i5 you're going to install.

    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.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.
