I'm putting parts together for a new rig, and I was wondering if the PSU I already have with my current pc can be recycled. Here's a list of the parts I'm planning on, but if I need to elaborate more, please let me know.

CPU:

GPU:

1x SATA 1TB HDD
1x IDE 60g HDD

The power supply I'm currently using is a 640w, and I've looked at a couple PSU calculators, just to try to get an average, and I'm getting answers anywhere from 350w (which is just.. just way too low) and 770w.

So my 640w will work fine, and leave me with a bit of overhead for upgrading in the future?

1. Pretty much any single GPU Rig is going to to be ~450w
2. Use PC Partpicker. It's what I use. People say it's reliable.
