I am wanting to update my current Gaming Desktop or build a whole brand new one. I am wanting to try and get an I-7 processor if possible but not sure what motherboards are compatible, what kind of power supply I need to get for both. My old desktop has a gtx970 it I can use that tell I get a new graphics card. So what ever help I can get would be greatly appreciated. Used this place for my first desktop I am using now. Ask away on specs you may need or whatever thanks for help! I would prefer to go with Pentium if at all possible.

So next question how hard is it to use my current OS on old PC and use same hard drive on it and put on new stuff? No idea if that makes sense. I don't wanna purchase another OS and or another hard drive if I don't have to.
