Upgrading a 2008 build. PSU compatibility? Thoughts?
Jul 12, 2014, 5:59 PM
In 2008 I built my first computer (e8400, ddr2 ram, modest graphics card, etc.)
I want to refurbish this computer to do light gaming, website editing, and relatively light work.
I want to reuse these parts in my build
PSU: Corsair 650TX (650w)
Case: Antec P182
HDD: WD Black 640GB
I plan on purchasing these new parts to update the computer.
Motherboard: Gigabyte H97
SSD: Samsung 840 Evo 250gb
Graphics: R7 250x
I understand this is closer to a new build than it is to an update, but I mainly wanted to make sure that the PSU was adequate and get a little guidance before I pull the trigger.
