hey guys. i have had a pc for 7- 8 years and yesterday i upgraded the graphics card to a pny geforce 1060 and the ram to 12 gig. my cpu is old (amd athlon 635 processor). the important part is that my power supply is also an old green 530 watt (7- 8 years used). will the power supply be safe for my system or should i buy a new one? i am really worried about the power safety of my pc
 
If you are concerned about it....it's almost worth the cash just to alleviate the concern.
That being said....if it were me I would buy a new one because 7-8 years is getting pretty old and I wouldn't want my new GTX 1060 or anything else getting fried.....and being you don't mention a manufacturer it may be a crap supply to begin with.

Where do you live and what would your budget be for a new PSU? The forum can give you some specific suggestions once we have that info.
i live in iran. i asked around for power supplies and i have about 70 dollars (because of us sanctions, things are pretty expensive here)

Well, give us a link to an online store you like. We will have a look around and offer some suggestions. International pricing can vary so much from country to country.

Well, if you are really worried about it, then buy a new one. A 7 to 8 year run is pretty good. A lot of PSU's do start having issues at around that age. Not all are immediately noticeable.

When you said "green PSU", did you mean the old green labeled corsair CX or were you referring to something else?

no friend, by Green i mean the manufactorer of the PSU. my pc case and power supply are made by GREEN.
ok then it looks like its worth the cash. i will buy one. thanks
