    Having just splashed out £450 on an upgrade, I'm wondering if i need to replace my 5+ year old HX620W PSU.
    It's served me flawlessly all this time but is there any reason to upgrade?
    Full spec can be found in the thread I posted in the build section of the forum.

    Should be fine unless you are pairing it up with something crazy GPU wise.

    Thanks, I hope so! Anybody know how long these PSUs are 'meant' to last?

    It's served me very well, however I've just bagged myself a good deal on a second hand RM850x :D
