    Ok, if I buy a second video card, could you give me advise/tips ?
    That also depends on games you plan to use but something in order of GT 960/970 or AMD R9 280/290 with at least 2GB or even better 4GB to ensure longer operational life. AMD is coming up with new R9 3xx so prices for present ones should drop soon and performance difference is not going to be great.

    Fantastic, my bigger doubts were the PC compatible with the motherboard,
    and the new motherboard with the existing graphic card.
    I have already pre-order the Windows 10.
    Is there anything that you might now do/buy if you were me ?
    I can't thank you enough for the help you giving me.
    Thanks CountMike.
    The other thing you need to check with your older hardware is whether you can get drivers for W10 some older HW you cannot get drivers for W10 as the manufacture wants to sell you new stuff and are not writing new drivers for there old stuff.

    After checking carefully I have chosen the Nvidia GTX 970.
    I will be aware of the Drivers issue
    MY final question would be, which PSU to buy for this new rig ?
    I cannot thank you enough, if you need anything from Portugal, please PM me and let me know.

    Best regards,

    Joaquim

    You should be just fine with that PSU. Recommendations are for 500W PSU and card needs 145W.
    You will also have almost enough parts to make half decent spare computer, all you need is a case, PSU (500W would be quite enough) and a HDD. If you can find some cheap second hand parts, should have a spare one for little money and effort.

I feel that we as experts on this forum should try and persuade any novices who are not sure about upgrading to Windows 10 should help explain why its good for them to upgrade from earlier versions. So I'll start off: Latest security ...
Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
