So, the power supply in our computer just exploded 2 months ago and i'm thinking of replacing it with a very good one(looking at the SeaSonic P-660). I'm planning using the other components(processor, mobo, vga, storage, memory) until the next 2-3 years together with the power supply before disposing them because the usage will only be include creating documents, internet surfing, streaming videos(that doesn't need HD-4K resolutions), some games that the vga and processor can handle and other average stuff that can be used in this build.
- Processor: Intel Core2Duo 2.93Ghz
- CPU Cooler: Intel Stock
- Motherboard: Asus P5KPL-AM EPU mATX
- VGA: Palit 9500 GT 512MB
- Storage: Seagate Barracuda 500GB
- Memory: Kingston ValueRAM 2GB DDR2 800
From time to time, i'll be adding a SSD, another mechanical drive(probably 1TB) because i'm assuming the 500gb hard drive will die 2-3 years after.
The question is, is the psu(SeaSonic p-660) worth it right now to be included in my current build and for my future use(the time i will dispose other components and replace them with new ones)? Or is it too much for the current components?
