that's an old PSU and I would skip it. if you want a decent PSU that is cheap, newegg has a sale on the antec 430w for around $30 after rebate, corsair has a similar offer for their 430w.

possibly, its an old design and not very efficient. it may state 500w but most of the amps will not be on the 12v rail that powers your cpu and gpu.
Ask a new question
Is my power supply powerful enough?
Will my power supply be compatible with my computer?
Will my 600W rosewill psu be enough?
Could a Rosewill 550 watt power supply handle this?
Which antec case should I get?
