I have a Enermax EG701AX-VE(W) (600watts) PSU that I'm hoping to reuse in a new computer build. I'd like to reuse as much as possible so I can allocate more finances towards the big 3 (CPU, MOBO, RAM).
I current have a 120GB SSD, and 3 other HDD, plus 2 DVD-burner drives, and an NVidia GeForce 8500GT video card.
I've never had any problems with the power supply, but nowadays I've seen PSUs with more than 600W. My current rig is painfully slow editing my GoPro videos, so it's time to upgrade.
I am contemplating a system based on the latest i7-3770 CPU. That being the case, I'd want a mobo ready for it.
So can I get away with reusing this PSU? And what mobo would work well with this CPU and my current video card, with room later to upgrade the video card when funds become available?
