Hi,

I was wondering if i could replace my 120W psu for a 200W psu or higher (https://www.replacedirect.nl/product/p0155279/samsung-ac-adapter.html?prrel=1374072)
And after that add a GTX card like 970 or 1070 without rapidly overheating and killing my parts in the long run.

I've seen multiple builds of this compact pc on Userbenchmark with an i7 and 1070 not sure what psu they were using.

Current Specs: i3 6100, Intel 530HD, 8GB.

the likely answer is they dumped the parts into a standard case

then just got a standard psu

So my best option is to move all the parts to a mid- high tower case and get myself a new psu and no worries?

If so can you recommend me a good mid- high tower case?
