my sister's rig has psu still running. 5 yrs old liaoz. and recently had a Pentium II rig that could still run. based on bios date and psu labels, psu already..... 14 years old.
Need a specially built PC rig that gives the most performance for a given budget? Looking for the fastest and cheapest options to repair up or upgrade ur PC rig or laptop? Look no further!

i have 2 OCZ power stream PSU, 1 is a first gen type 420W adj, that one was last used working abt 2 years back, so it's abt 6 years.

Another one is the later 550W modular PSU with blue connectors , used in my wife PC, still going strong and coupled with a sapphire 5850, that PSU is also abt 5 years old if i am correct.
