Old PSU in new computer

Hey guys,

I'm planning to build a budget gaming PC. I own a 500 watt PSU right now, and it is fairly old. Would it be smart to just put this one in the new PC? Or do you guys think it isn't good anymore?

The specs are going to be:
Pentium G860
HD 7750 1GB
Team Elite 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333

    I know man it just sounded funny. Any burned smell is bad news. I was just reading a wine review though ( don't ask me why I hardly ever drink it ) and you saying that made me compare the PSU and laugh.
