    Any of those cards will work, just be aware that some will also require an upgrade to the power supply. IIRC you have 500W right now and a 3090 for instance requires 750W.

    Pretty much everything, though replacing the motherboard will likely not be nice and clean since the front ports for the case are built into the current MB. What kind of storage do you have now? SSD or HDD or both? Upgrading from a HDD to SSD is the biggest bang for your buck you'll be able to do. Next upgrade after that really depends on where you might be bottlenecking now. Usually I go SSD, memory, GPU/PSU then processor...

    Hi. Did you upgrade the power supply? Was it possible? I am considering an Orion 5000 to buy but want to know if the power supply is upgradable? Does the motherboard accepts any of the 3rd party power supplies out there? Or is it proprietary and you can't use modular PSUs on it?

    Thanks.

    The current version of the Predator Orion 5000 is the PO5-640 and that model uses a standard ATX style power supply, so larger ones are easy. This thread is for the PO5-600s models, which have a 9th gen chipset, vs. the 12th gen chipset in the -640, so there is three years difference between them.

    No not yet I was thinking to try and change it this month but I wanna make sure first if I have to change the power supply or not and if it's hard to change.

    It's not that hard to change on a PO5-600s or on the new PO5-640. What you need to know first is which GPU you are putting in, so you know how big the PSU needs to be.
