Hi, I have an Inspiron 546 desktop computer I have used at home for 5 years or so. I am wanting to use it more for work, particularly to run a design program. The program puts out recommended specs Processor: Intel Core i7 or AMD equivalant Memory: 8 GB RAM Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 or ATI Radeon HD 6950 or better Recommended to have a solid state drive to make experience "more enjoyable"
The Inspiron currently has Processor: AMD Phenom 9650 Quad-Core 2.30Ghz Memory: 8GB RAM Graphics: NVIDIA Geforce GT220 655GB HDD
My first question is if I wanted to replace my graphics card, Processor, & HDD for SDD, are the requirements too out of reach for my motherboard/power that I would end up pretty much replacing everything?
Also, I think my motherboard only supports 1.5gb/second if I upgraded to a SDD.

the short answer is 'Get a new system'
the motherboard will only take 95W CPUs and only AM2+ ready. Not even close to the software requirement. adding a different video card will require a new PSU
