You already know it's crappy so we'll leave that alone.

E6300 uses less power than a P4 and you're losing 2 drives, it should power the upgraded system.

You did mention that you knew it was a crappy psu , right ?

Hmmmm...... The 25 amps on the 12 volt rail is weak. A high quality 500 to 550 watt power supply will usually have about 40 amps on the 12 volt rail. That makes me wonder what else is lacking.

I can't recall anyone asking about Logisys during the past couple of years. Normally Google is my friend; however, I didn't find any technical reviews for the specific model. I did take a look at reviews at several other models. Generally speaking, the power supplies are adequate for typical users but not for hardcore gamers into serious overclocking on a do or die mission to save the planet from alien invaders.

Luckily there are quite a few technical reviews which show power consumption for systems with a 9600GT. Here are a few examples:

The official recommendation is for a 400 watt power supply with 25 amps on the 12 volt rail. That's for the entire pc system. Manufacturers have a tendency to overestimate power requirements. They factor in the performance of low budget psu's. You'll probably be okay for a while. I recommend you start saving for a high quality power supply.

this pc will not be used a lot. not so much for gaming and definitely no overclocking. I just want it to run the system, that all and hope it doesn't blow up

If little gaming and no overclocking, then you'll be okay.
