No. You do not want to use that power supply with that system, or any system for that matter. That is a VERY old unit.

Not only is that a low quality power supply, with a deceptive total output considering it only has 26 amps on the 12v rail, but it's also a near certainty that the unit is extremely old as no modern power supplies would have a reference for compatibility with a Pentium 4 on the specifications decal. My advice would be to throw that unit in the trash, because it is not safe to use with any system, and get something that is reliable in the 550-650w range.
