    Thanks for the time spent with this issue.

    You can use Pick Parts, Build Your PC, Compare and Share - PCPartPicker United Kingdom to add the components you wish to buy and this site will tell you if they are compatible. Not only that but it will say if the psu that you plan to get will be able to handle the new hardware.

    You should be able to reuse everything else without problems. Only problem I can see is Windows if they are OEM. Depending on license, you may need to buy new ones.

    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.

    That processor deserves better video card if you are serious gamer. Depending on new GPU, you may need a better/stronger PSU but that could be done later.

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?
