    Help with Hardware for upgrading my PC plz!


    2008 Gateway FX 4710
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 2.50GHz
    6.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 332MHz
    Gateway G33M05G1 (Socket 775)
    512MB GeForce 9800 GT

    Hello, I am trying to upgrade the hardware parts in my computer to make it even more up-to-date and better for gaming, but I need some help. My first question is, if the hardware I posted below will all fit into my computers case without any issues because I am not familiar with the sizes/shapes of the hardware nor of my case. (You can find my system specs in my profile i believe, but i also posted the stats on the top of this message just in case.)

    Second Question, I am basically trying to purchase these items listed below, but I was wondering if they will all be installed and work together properly without and problems since I don't really understand if these parts are compatible with each other. Also, which one of the motherboards am I better off with. Here is the list:

    1) Intel Core I5-2500k Processor

    2) MSI P67A-C43 B3 Intel P67 Motherboard
    OR
    ASUS P8P67 LE B3 Intel P67 Motherboard

    3) EVGA 01G-P3-1461-KR GeForce GTX 560 Superclocked Video Card - 1GB

    4) And a recommended power supply to handle everything. I was thinking at least 700 W power supply

    FEEL FREE TO OFFER SOME BETTER UPGRADES,
    ASK QUESTIONS (ill try my best to answer),
    AND PLEASE LMK IF THESE WILL ALL WORK TOGETHER.


    THANKS!

    The memory you have won't work with an I5 processor; they require DDR3.

    You need DDR3 RAM for the latest upgrades.
