Yes, type of socket has nothing to do with it.

If you have these older components why are you just now buying a PSU? Did your old one fail or what?

Your CPU peaks out at 136W, the 8800 at 172W. Your drives and board don’t pull that much. A good 600W PSU should be more than adequate. See the first link below for a suggestion and the second for some understanding of power requirements.

First of all, why do you think you need 100W?

Antec normally has been a good brand. However, in this case they are out and out lying about the output potential.

V x A = W. Using that formula the rail outputs add up to 2127.5W. Obviously way more than the 100Ws claimed. This means they are fudging the actual capabilities. Look at the input ratings.

13A @115V = 1495W potential output @ 100%. Nothing is 100%.

In short, look elsewhere.

Post what graphics card/ cards and what CPU, you intend to use so we can recommend what wattage PSU you actually need.

Why older using older components? Newer components are powerful and use less power.

Unless you are going to eventually get a VERY serious gaming graphics card or run multiple graphics cards, the 600Watt power supply listed as a suggestion to you is all you will ever need.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
