I would consider getting a new one then, to be on the safe side..

hmm but since CPU uses the same wattage does the mobo/ram need more power?

If the mobo has more features, it's possible that it will use more power. It's just hard for me to recommend using an old PSU in a new build, considering how important a PSU is. It is the only component of your build that can take out all your other components if it fails.

I see im pretty sure it can handle since my GPU needs like 95 W lol :p
