    The HP system you linked to is an AMD system with DDR2 memory.
    The z77 is an Intel system with DDR3 memory.
    Your current cpu and memory are NOT compatible with any z77 motherboard.

    A 1000 watt power supply is a way too big for your system. What is the brand and model number of the new psu?

    Man that's an old computer. I think you need a total upgrade which would mean upgrading from scratch and buying a new unit...

    OMG, yes that is an old, in PC years, system. From the Vista era, and an Nvidia chipset board too, those are not good.

    Why in the world do PCs like this have strange memory configurations, 3GB total, 1.5GB per channel, split between a 1GB DIMM, and a 512MB DIMM. Even new PCs from companies like this will have 6GB of memory on a dual channel board. That usually limits the amount operating in dual channel mode. Just crazy...
