Hello guys, I have a fun and somewhat stupid project to do just for fun to see whats doable in the world of pc building. I have a Dell Optiplex 990 SFF. I have a GT 730 2 GB Low Profile Card which doesn’t work in this system. :D
I am planning on to swap the motherboard, CPU, and the PSU. I know this may sound crazy but I want to put a very small, yet compatible I/O motherboard for this fun dell optiplex 990 sff project. I want to see if I can modernize it otherwise, I do know this is somewhat crazy. I might as well just buy a new machine. But its not about that. It’s about the experiment of see whats possible if I want to give another life to this old pc.
So, can you all drop your opinion as far as what modern mini/micro atx motherboard would be both suitable for the dell optiplex 990 sff and the GT 730 card I got? Added, what 500 Watts PSU do you recommend?
Also please note that I as far as the CPU, I can do anything since the motherboard is going to get replaced.
Oh one last thing. I got these two DDR4 Sticks which I want to put in it: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 CL16 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit F4-3200C16D-16GVKB – Black
It would be fun to see this work. Thanks in advance.
