Default PSU Compatibility?

Hello everyone!

This section of the forums seemed appropriate for this question, as this technically counts as an upgrade.

I recently tore a PC my friend gave me down to the ground, and was able to salvage a few parts, including a PSU that still works. A rating of 325W max, but it kicks the crap out of the one in my main tower (288W). My question is, how can I tell if it is compatible with my PC?

Side note: the computer I tore it out of had a fried graphics processor on the motherboard. Don't suppose this PSU could be guilty of that?

Thanks in advance everyone!

Default Re: PSU Compatibility?

It could be. The only way it wouldn't be compatible is if it didn't fit where your current one goes or doesn't have the necessary connectivity.

What's the brand of PSU?
