time for upgrade

I am going to be upgrading my system and I was wondering if you guys had any input. Should I get a bigger PSU? I am going to be using some of the parts from my old system to help keep cost down.

Old system:
AXP 2500 stock speeds
Abit NF7-S v2.0
2x256mb corsair pc3200c2pt
Hercules 3DProphet 9800pro
Lite-On SOHW 832s
Xaser3 case with TT 430W PSU

I was thinking about switching my CPU, Mobo, and Memory to:
A64 3200 90nm
MSI K8n Neo2 Platinum
2x512mb corsair pc3200c2pt

When I switch to those new parts and keep the other old ones(especially video card, can't afford a new one yet), will my PSU still be ok or does that need to be upgraded too? Also will the memory be ok or should I try another brand/speed? If I have to change my PSU what brand and power would you recommend?

When I upgrade I will have an AXP 2500 barton, 2x256 sticks or corsair, thermalright slk 800u, and Abit Nf7-S v2.0 for sale if anyone is interested.

Remember, there are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

  1. Try your old power supply first. It won't anything to try. If you decide to change, I recommend sparkle (fortron) or antec truepower series.
