Depends on the make and model. Even though the system doesn't pull alot of power there are some PSUs that are dangerous to use at any load.

Unless he wants to buy a new psu every few months the VS is not a good choice. The VS series like the CX series uses low quality capacitors that have a short lifespan.

Yeah, but I see no overclocking ambitions with the OP, so imo this PSU will do him just fine... Personally using a VS350W on my HTPC for 2yrs now and it's still rocking solid

Hard to recommend a PSU when I don't know what country you live in.

It may work(till the caps blow atleast), but why use it when there are better options that cost less?
 


Buy a good power supply and be through.

Splendid

You could use that power supply but I would recommend an XFX 550W power supply or a Seasonic 520W power supply.
