The only other thing is, as the other guys said, it WOULD be a good idea to go with a more well known model of power supply. You know why I think that, so I'll leave the decision up to you.

Other than that, you're good to go!

Because the PSU is an important part of the system and yours is not recognised by us as being good.

No it doesn't. There are people here with orders of magnitude more experience than you and they know what they know because of all the evidence they have seen. There are numerous reasons why your PSU could have survived for so long, including the possibility that it is actually a quality PSU but because it is effectively unbranded we can't know for sure.

You didn't specify what you wanted beyond asked us what we thought. There was no indication that you wanted advice on the CPU.
