Maybe yes and maybe no.....

This depends on the condition of the power supply, it's ability to drive what you're putting in the new system, and it's wattage.

Generally a newer system means that you'll be using newer devices (and maybe more devices) and that will consume more power - so a new power supply may be called for.

I currently have a 450 watt PSU and it's fine for my needs - although others will recommend a 500 watt for general use.
