Hello, i have an old computer that i built back in 2008, and im going to use my old chieftec dragon case.
And was wondering if i could use my old powersupply :??: 

It's an OCZ Modstream 520W (620W PEAK 60sec)

I've been checking out these online calculators and their all different and tell me from 480W and up to 560W.
So i wanted to get an human prospective on all this.

Anywho.. my new build would be:

Motherboard: ASRock 880 Pro3 ATX AMD AM3+
Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 Six-Core Processor 1090T (3.2GHz) AM3
Cooling: CoolerMaster V8
Graphics card: nVidia GeForce GTX560 Ti Twin Frozr II OC 1GB DDR5
RAM: G.Skill 8GB Ripjaws PC3-10666 (2x4GB)

1x DVD Writer
6x 80mm Case fans (+2 maybe)

Thanks in advance ;)

Hate to be a downer, but you need at least a 600W PSU for this rig. if you go a full load on proc and video card, you will not get it fro a 530W supply.
