    I'm going to be using a AMD based 5150 system, I've heard the total system draw will be 40-50w. i'm going to be using a 850w PSU (Cheiftec A-135c 850w). I'm wondering if this will cause some sort of issue with this exceptionally low draw since this psu is around 3-4 years old now...

    Any other options for psu if i need to buy a new one?

    Shouldn't be a problem at all. You're going to have pretty crappy efficiency, but at that low of power draw it isn't really going to make that much of a difference.
