Is my PSU still good and hold my system?

Hi guys, i have the PC of the signature with TT SmarT 750w 80+ bronze that i bought in the end of 2014, all real reviews i saw of this PSU say its great, a 9/10 only losing due to the lack of modular cables and 50C Power Rating, all i wanna know is it gonna be enough to still hold this system with its OC on memory and on GPU (+60 core +200 memory clock) for a good time or i should save money and change it in the middle to the end of the year?

It will work just fine, but I would recommend upgrading soon. 5-7 years old is when these types of power supplies start failing.

Main PC:  MacBook Air (M1, 2020), 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage; running macOS, but waiting for Linux to be ported to the M1

Check put my signature for a reference to power draw. My main rig only has a 650 watt PSU.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad
