Default What should I do?

My psu is a 550watt psu, I have a 4850 512mb vid card, and sata dvd burner and sata hardrives, the mobo is non working, same as processor, the ram is DDR2..

What I'm wondering is if I should just scrap the psu and vid card and just rebuild an entire new system from PSU up. or is a 550 psu able to handle like a amd black edition phenom 2 quad core. I'll probably be upgrading to a faster hard drive and faster ram as well. I'm a have about 700 bucks I think to remodel this build so I was wondering what I should keep and what I should do away with.

Hmmm No I think that the 550W PSU should be suffiecent
I have a 600w for my build (located in signature) and As far as Im concerned it's more than enough

thats my personal oponion but do not let me be the one that makes the decision for you
