I am building a new pc but not for anything to serious just for games like the total war series and a few others anyway I have already picked out the parts I just want you guys to tell me if they will work and if the PSU I have will have enough power.




The PSU I have is from my old desktop I plan on buying a new PSU in a month or two when I buy a GPU.

Here is all the info i could find on the PSU
Power consumption 240 watts maximum

Acoustic Power Emissions IDLE (Fixed disk drive spinning): LWAd = 4.0 Bels; FIXED DISK (Random write): LWAd = 4.0 Bels; FLOPPY DRIVE (Floppy to HD file copy): LWAd = 4.5 Bels; OPTICAL DRIVE (Sequential Reads):
LWAd = 5.4 Bels

Operating Temperature Range 10 to 35° C

Operating Humidity Range 10 to 90% RH

Non-Operating Humidity 5 to 95% RH

Will this PSU be able to power the pc I am build or will I have to buy a new one right away?Thanks to anyone who answers

The PSU might make enough power, but I wouldn't trust it to a new system. You want one from Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic.

You want dual channel RAM

You should get it. It will run faster than single channel.
