I originally thought I had a 500w pus, it turns out to be a 400w. I'm using a btx case now so the details were obstructed. It's a 400w neo eco.

 

I'd like to move it to my new pc i'll be getting soon, in order to cut costs but I don't know if it's adequate. DIfferent power calculators give me different answers

 

 

I-5 6500 cpu

b150m-a motherboard

4 hard drives

1 cd drive

pci-e wifi card

usb mouse and keyboard

 

I don't plan any gpu updates, I might get a front panel usb hub that connects to the pci-e later on.

That PSU is bit old, but should be enough for those. But what video card? Integrated?

Yes, integrated graphics, no real plans to get a new card right now. 

 

EDIT:
I do plan on getting a multi 2.0 on the 5.25 bat  to connect to the motherboard, or maybe a 3.o that connects to the pci-e. Some of those come with around 4 usb slots and a multi card reader,  I don't know if I would be pushing the limits of the psu with that set up.

PCI express x1 slot is about 10 watts max so no problems from PSU.
