Default Will this PSU work?

Here is the info about the PSU. It's a couple years old.
- Demon Black Chrome ATK Switching Power Supply
In: 115V/230V 10A/6A 60/50Hz
Out: 580W
ATX
I can't find any information about it on the internet anymore. I could physically look at the connectors and tell you what they are, but that may not be necessary.

Here's what I'm trying to use it for. I'll just give the item numbers off Newegg.com:
N82E16820211062
N82E16813130129R
N82E16819115029
There is also a dvdrw drive. a Seagate Barracuda 80GB IDE hard drive, a wireless lan card, and a Radeon 9250 PCI.
The main thing is the motherboard (A-DATA Value Series 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model VDQVE1A16) and CPU (Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80557E6750).
I'm just wondering if I will need to buy a new PSU as well. Thanks.

As long as you don't put in any high end graphics card, it should be fine. Even then it might be fine depending on the amps on the 12v.

well, if you call working for a few months then blowing up because one day it got too hot working, then by all means, i guess it'll work perfectly.

whether that will actuallly happen, I don't know.

Well, it's not the newest power supply in the world. And it does have a fan (I've seen some older ones that don't), so hopefully it won't blow up anytime soon.

I was planning on buying a new video card, but that will be a couple months from now probably. I guess I'll get a new PSU then. Any tips on what to look for when I do?
