I neeed a atx psu to complete a scrapper I'm building for my sister in law, a single mother of 2
So ;) if you do decide to chuck it :)

But to answer your question you could probaly certainly use it for a new system though you may have to buy some converters, molex-> sata power, 20pin->24pin power connector, ect

You might be pushing it a bit if you want to put in a powerful graphics card, but if not you should be ok, i have a system with a C2D 2.4ghz cpu, 2 gig ram, hd, dvdrw and an 8800gt running fine on an old 400 watt psu..

what motherboard would you guys suggest for this to run. i think i need an atx form not an mATX to fit in my case. im dont know if it both will fit
#4
mATX will fit in any motherboard that accepts ATX boards.

oh my bad. i dont think i can accept pci-e with my psu so will have to get a board that doesnt have this

Graphics card pci-e power connector you mean? If thats the case you would be better of buying a new PSU, you can get fairly decent 500W ones for about £30.. but bear in mind some slower pci-e cards dont need external power and are powered straight from the motherboard
