    Not sure the watts but that is a pretty weak PSU as it only provides 7.5 amps on the 12 volt rail.
    I have seen 300 watt PSU's that supply at least 14 amps to the 12 volt rail.

    - additional info: says it's for pentium 4
    - has one sata power connector

    this PSU is currently powering my spare unit with a 2.4Gz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, Intel DG33BU mobo and 2gig of memory with onboard graphics, planning to add a gpu that requires atleast 400watts to run so I was just wondering if this PSU can be utilized...thanks

    I'd buy a new one. If you put that vga card in it'll go bang real quick :)
