Would this PSU be suitable.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm helping someone buy some new new hardware since their old computer recently had an issue, and I was wondering if this PSU would be suitable for using with an i3 2100, pretty much using integrated graphics and basic DVD, HDD and such alongside it. This PSU I got from a relative who was a computer technician on the side and gave it to us awhile ago for a computer which the PSU died on it but we never used it and I was wondering if it would not have any issues being it's slightly old such.

It's info is the following
Manufacture: Delta Power
Model (?): MAX-500ATX

+5v: 25A
+12v: 18A
-5v: 0.5A
-12v: 0.8A
+3.3v: 24A
5vSB: 2A

Since it's pretty much just the CPU having power demandsl I'm assuming this power supply will be sufficient?
Thanks in advance.

You can use a 2x Molex -> EPS(8pin CPU) adapter

Oh? Too bad, well anyways got a killer deal on a PSU. CX430 for $17. Definetly a tidbit of knowledge for using older PSU's thanks a load . I feel like just tearing apart broken stuff now and throwing together a quick adapter =]
