Okay so after much worrying and searching over whether or not my Dell XPS 630i's 750W PSU will be able to power my new parts that I want to buy (I was just worried about the power connectors not fitting into any of the new parts because the PSU is nearly 5 years old), though I know I have enough wattage to power this stuff, I was just worried about my PSU being too old. Alas, I'm looking for anything that might not work at all with the stuff I'm upgrading to:

Asus M5A97 MoBo- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
XFX DD 7870 Ghz Edition- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
AMD FX-6300 Vishera- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Cooler Master Seidon 120M- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Cooler Master Elite 430- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And here are the connectors for the PSU I'm using, if anyone knows that the current connectors on my PSU won't work to power any of these, please let me know what they need to be at or list/link an adapter I could buy to save myself some grief. Thanks!

1 x 24-pin ATX Connector (P1)
1 x 8-pin ATX Power Connector (P15)
4 x 4-pin Molex IDE Power Connector (P8, P11, P12, P14)
6 x 15-pin Serial ATA Power Connectors (P4, P5, P6, P7, P9,P10)
1 x Floppy Power Connector (P13)
2 x 6-pin PCIe Connectors (P2, P3)

You have the necessary connectors, I would be more concerned with its quality and age. 5yrs is when you should replace a PSU because the capacitors wear out over time, and I don't think that PSU was the greatest to begin with.

Awesome, thank you. Yes I'm worried about that. I think I may just need to bite the bullet and buy a new PSU, which might entail just buying a whole new computer... thanks manofchalk.
