Trying to upgrade my pre-built computer. My head hurts.

Hey everyone.

I just got my computer back, I send it to repair a BIOS problem and it just arrived today.

I want to upgrade it. I was wondering if I can.

My specs:

- Mobo: Medion H81H3-EM2 chipset from Intel
- CPU: i7 4790
- GPU: GTX 750 1GB
- RAM: 8gb DDR3
- PSU: 350W random brand

I was planning on buying a Gtx 1070 to upgrade my pc. The problem is for that I need a new PSU.

Main problem rn is that my MOBO only has a 14 pin entrance.(https://scontent-fra3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t34.0-12/16683413_1815329388715936_450873597_n.jpg?oh=5dfcc2f93b2ebb7d08bbd11d75d12add&oe=589F94E6) What can I do?

More about upgrade pre built computer head hurts
  1. are you sure all the matter is going to be just a PSU ?? does that prebuilt proprietary motherboard have a bios that will support these newer card or any card for that matter ??

    googling that Medion H81H3-EM1 I get no results but I do for a Medion H81H3-EM2 like from Poland or inda nothing mainstream or real life


    what can you do ?? save your money and disappointment I think

    if it was to have a full uefi bios on it you may be lucky , but that's the risk you take
