Upgrading PC 605-UB12

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I've just wanted to find out what is the correct motherboard to upgrade to with this system currently without changing the case.

So far my build can be seen here http://www.heypasteit.com/clip/3AB0 - This shows my Computer Specs etc.

So far I'm thinking I need to upgrade the motherboard and add a video card to this system.

Although this system's motherboard has a wifi card in it, I'm not sure what I can do about this moving to a upgraded motherboard.

Aside from that even though I did purchase a SSD I noticed that these are very expensive to come by. 

Should I upgrade the motherboard? or just purchase a video card and be done with it?

I don't see the point of changing out the motherboard. I would just get a new video card. The power supply for that machine is a little light, so you might also end up upgrading that if the video card puts it over the limit.
