Worth it to reuse old power supply?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

So with Battlefield 4 around the corner, I am thinking of building a new rig. I have had my current rig since July 2009 so I am thinking its time for an upgrade. I am planning on reusing my hard drives, optical drive, RAM, and possibly power supply. I am not too sure though on the effects of using a 4 year old PSU in a new build. This is the PSU I have been using for the past 4 years.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006

It still seems to be running fine, but wasn't even sure on the average lifespan of a PSU? Basically, would yall reuse it or buy a new one?

I've been using a Radeon HD 4890 since I bought it as well.

Also let me know if you need any other info.

Thanks again!

Let it ride. You bought well the first time around in 09' and it's still a pretty decent PSU.
