    Hi guys. For a good quality PSU, is there a good "rule of thumb" to go by as to the usable life span?

    I ask only because I am on the home stretch of building my 1155 system, and I currently have a Thermaltake psu Pure Power 430W that's getting to be about 4 years old. It's been powerering the system in my sig since purchased new. On average, I'd say my computer is on about 60 hours a week, with 50% of those hours used for gaming. The rest of the time it is either powered off or in Sleep Mode.

    Should I consider a new PSU, or should the Pure Power 430W keep chugging along for quite some time yet?

    What are the specs of the rest of the rig? 430W may be pushing it depending on what you want to run.

    If I'm not mistaken, it is an intel dual core + nvidia old graphic of 2xxx series + 1x700gb seagate hdd, liteon dvd, 4gb ram + gigabyte mb. Nothing fancy.
