Reuse old PSU in new build or retire? (Cooler Master V700)


This question has probably been asked several times, however I've not been able to match it to my situation so here I am.

I've got a PSU that's probably... 6-7 years old, specifically Cooler Master V700, and as the title suggests I'm planning on using it a new build. From what I remember it's based on parts from Seasonic and did very well in reviews.
As for now I'm going to wait for the Ryzen 5000 launch, to compare it to a i7-10700k, and will probably go for a GPU from the new RX6000 series that's comparable to a 5700-ish.
The idea is to build something that's "sustainable", as my current build was/is. Will the PSU sustain another build or should it be retired/sold?
