The are both 20-pin ATX PSUs so it should be just fine.

Just a word of caution, I wouldn't go poking around inside that PSU, there are capacitors that will hold a charge for weeks.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Scary looking caps in that second pic.

Caps look ok to me
if there goning to leak then the top of the cap goes up right?? and the blows up
well thats part of the mother board so it dont matter all thats matter is i can take out the psu and put in the other computer
so you guys SURE the psu will work in the other computer

I wouldn't suggest that it was if I hadn't checked to be sure. By the way... google is your friend.
