Use old working PSU or buy new

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So im at a cross road, I have in my current rig a working Corsair AX750 thats doing just fine. Im looking to move money around to buy better components for my new PC. Does anyone see an issue with re-using a several year old PSU??

I don't see any reason not to keep it since it works fine still. I never replace mine until I need more power or they fail.
