On an old motherboard and case I’d like to know if someone can please help me find a good Case, Mother-Board, PSU (that is compatible with these stuff) for around $250-350 USD that will have unlimited upgrade options in the future
Thanks a lot for your time, in advance

There is no way you can get unlimited upgrades. No matter what price you get, you cant upgrade the same motherboard forever. And electronics certainly won't last forever

Get a fully modular PSU I would say a 2000 watt fully modular PSU and this is perfect to suit your processor upgrades that requires more power and since it's fully modular you can remove and plug in cables. Make sure it fits in your case.

If you have 250 to 350 usd then buy this, use your existing case/psu/gpu/ssd
When you get more money get a better PSU

Which motherboard exactly do you have because it's hard to suggest without the full component info and to see if all those you listed in pcpartpicker are compatible with the motherboard. Also consider the case... The bigger it is, the more hard drives you can install and since I recommend the PSU I mentioned to be full modular, you can just plug in more SATA cables in it.. please if you can post a picture of the motherboard so I can see for myself

Hi thank you very much for replying the thing is that right now I’m using the Dell optiplex 7010 SFF it isn’t really designed for different motherboards or power supplies I have 32gb of ddr3 RAM (see the pcpartpicker list) it would be a shame to lose that and I’ve got the i7 processor I bought that originally to be supported by the low power supply that the optiplex has (there isn’t really any upgrade options for that) the case is small so it restricts the upgrade capabilities so that’s why I decided to look for a case, motherboard and power supply that would support all these things so if you can please find something for that it would be much appreciated.
I’m not an expert at these stuff 😀 so I wouldn’t know which motherboard is ok for the price I’m willing to pay

I think the max ram that motherboard can take is 16gb DDR3 so you will lose half of your ram unless you can use it in future
The motherboard I’m using right now can take up to 32gb and when anyone suggests a new one please I want it to support at least 32gb if not 64gb
Thanks alot

You can use the 32gb ram You must be using Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate to do this. If your OS is Windows 7 Premium, only 16GB of RAM will be recognized I'm not sure about windows 10 home/pro.
The CPU will work
GPU will work because it is a low profile one and it will fit in your case

You can either have 4 ram sticks at 4gb each or 2 sticks at 8gb but Google which slot you need to put it in.
So if you remove the other 16 gb from the list you will have 2x8gb which is fine and this gives you money for other things.

Sorry for being so confusing, my motherboard right now has 4 slots and I have installed 32gb of ram.
The list that I sent here is of most the items that I’m using right now I just skipped the case motherboard and power supply because that’s right now the most necessary upgrades so I’m looking for an upgrade that will support the components that I’ve already got

Thanks a lot and sorry for being so confusing

For now, stick to your budget and use the 32gb. In Future when you have money you can upgrade the PSU and ram but I don't know if it's supports 64gb ram but you can try if you want to because I'm just giving some advice that you can choose to follow or not.

So what should I do right now?
Because as I said before my case doesn’t have space to upgrade a psu it’s a small form factor

Or you could use the one you already have
That’s the whole point I’ve been looking for a sff psu upgrade but unfortunately there is no such a thing or at least not for my model computer and besides I don’t want just a psu I want a case motherboard and psu that will support what I’ve already got and it should be able to be upgradable for a processor and graphics card (when I’ll have enough money 😂)
It’s not just the psu
Thanks

Then looks like if you want to upgrade everything then you need a more upgradeable motherboard and an ATX case.
BUT Futureproofing is kinda a hard thing to do due to the market always changing.

Haswell has released and that is top tier new stuff. Although I will be sticking with my Ivy Bridge CPU because the performance gains is not that good; that is my opinion. I am actually more interested in the new Motherboards which are z87 boards.

There are a lot of manufacturers out there spend time on Google because you know what best fits your needs

Your socket is lga1155 which is a dead socket and the max is the i7 Ivy bridge 3770. So get a more recent socket type motherboard and a big case for all those upgrades. And if you are looking for more ram then look for a board with at least 4 slots for ram. Unless you want to stick to what you already have which isn't very upgradeable.

Sell it all, get $300 and then add that to your pile of cash already and then get a computer for $650
