Will this power supply be adequate for this build?

Greetings!

 

I came across some parts that I am going to build a low usage HTPC/Emulation computer.

 

 

CPU: AMD - A8-6600K 3.9GHz Quad-Core Processor 
Motherboard: MSI - A88XI AC Mini ITX FM2+ Motherboard 
Memory: Patriot - Viper 3 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory 
Storage: Samsung - 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive 
 

I have this 80+ Silver PSU that I pulled from an old dell rig. Here is a pic of the specs:

Please advise.

 

Thanks

Don't see why it wouldn't.

 

Just make sure your PSU is compatible with the MOBO you have.

 

I know that dell likes to make their own custom MOBOs and also their own custom PSUs to fit them.

Does that mean that the connector plastic is shaped differently or that the electrical wires are in different spots? Because if it doesnt fit I can always file down some edges but I don't want stuff to break.

 

Thanks

Connector plastic is shaped differently. Sometimes the wires are different too.

 

I don't condone you filing the edges down to make it fit. Not what it was made for, spend the extra cash to get a PSU rather than breaking all your components in one hit.

How much are those parts? Or do you already own them?

it's probably fine but if the money isn't too big of an issue you should probably replace it.

 

just don't run a GPU with it for sure.

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

If you have the spare cash you can always reuse a decent PSU in the future, be it a CX(2017) white label from corsair or a Masterwatt unit.

 

And if you add in another 4GB stick of RAM you double your iGPU's performance

I assume doubling that 8 to 16 would yield diminishing results or would it have a serious impact like 4>8 would?

Really not going to matter with that system if you get 16GBs of RAM, keep it cheap most likely, unless you find a really good deal on 16GBs of DDR3

I have someone who is willing to send me a 4GB stick for $9. Good to know that it will run better. 

 

Thanks for the help.
