Is my PSU compatible with new motherboards?

I want to replace the motherboard + cpu + memory of my current system which is 5 - 6 years old.

I have a Corsair HX520 PSU. Would that be compatible with a new motherboard? I plan to get an ASUS P8Z77 MB.

I ask this question because I wonder if newer MB require different power connectors than those used my my current LGA 775 MB.

I am not a gamer so I am sure that 520 Watts is more than enough for my needs.

  1. If the new board is ATX, and the old is then it will work.
  2. The new ASUS P8Z77 mobo will have an 8-pin CPU power connector but the 4-pin CPU power connector on your power supply should still work as shown in the rightmost figure in the following image.
