most likely it will, if the PSU came with a prefab then yes it will, prefab PSU's are great, they are very efficent so the manufacturers dont have to make them such high watts

Should be fine. If you do start to put hardware in (like graphics cards) you will want to look at better PSU's.

That will be fine. I don't think they even have a power connector on them.

Reminds me of when I had my Athlon 1.4 Ghz. That was back when I didn't know diddly squat about computers. Before that it was a 700Mhz slot-socket Athlon.

Yeah I think you'll be ok. My dad's PC had a 300 watt PSU with a GeForce FX5500, 2 hard drives, 2 cd drives, a p4 2.4ghz, gig of ram, and 1 fan at the back.

I got a 250 watt PSU powering another pc with a 1.8ghz athlon xp, radeon 9550, 512 megs of ram, 2 hard drives, 2 cd drives.
