Hello all, I'm now to this forum but am heavy into emulation. I had a few questions that I was hoping could be answered by the people here who are more experienced than I.

1. Will my hardware run RPCS3; If my hardware can't are there compatible upgrades that can?
I'm using a repurposed Dell business desktop with some upgrades here are the relevant specs are
- i5-4590
- 16GB RAM (DDR3)
- GTX 1650
The board is rated for up to an i7-4790. If upgrading I would like to cut down on the power draw if possible as my power supply is theoretically nearly maxed out.

2. What are some compatible blu-ray drives that can read/rip PS3 games?

I'm aware of the list here https://rpcs3.net/quickstart but I've already come across confirmation that there are some outside that list that work too. Additionally my Dell can only take a slim line or otherwise an external drive. I've sampled a few random ones from the list and the external ones seem to be no longer manufactured and the internal ones are far too large.
