I'm trying to put together the best budget computer I can for my parents. In doing so, I'm reusing a lot of old components like the tower, fans, cables, etc. I have a used Antec VP-450 450W ATX PSU that I used in my 2012 build still installed in the tower I plan to use.
Is it suicide to try and continue using that old PSU? I'd really only be saving another $40-ish, and I'm thinking it's not worth the risk, but I was also curious to hear what others think.
For those interested, here's the build (I have all peripherals and extra HDD on hand, so this is bare bones). https://pcpartpicker.com/user/onipar/saved/#view=2PxWD3
