I am attempting to upgrade this old Compaq 6200 with a new PSU, GPU and RAM. I purchased a Gigabyte GTX 1060, but unfortunately it is blocked by the CPU cooling pipe from the i5-2400 3.1GhZ CPU. I want to try to mount this GPU further down, but I have been unable to acquire a PCI extender cable and am wondering if anyone can find one, Maplins, PC World and Novatech have all failed me.
Also, I wish to replace the PSU with an EVGA W1 500W power supply, but this power supply does not have a 6 PIN P2 source, which the board seems to require. Does a converter cable exist to change a P7 or PCI-E 4/6 PIN into a flat 6 PIN P2?
I am at the point where without a solution, I will be forced to buy a new motherboard and just rebuild the PC. Hoping for some answers!
P.S I couldn't find a more appropriate forum, apologies.
