Ok, so I'm going to be putting together an Athlon build with either a 1GHz or 1.2GHz Athlon (already have both). Problem is, I don't really have many psus that have a strong 5v rail. A little while ago I got a psu from someone I know but its some off brand Ive never heard of but it claims to have 40amps on the 5v. I opened it up and all the caps look good but I'm not really sure about actually using it. The person I got it from said they used it for years in an AthlonXP build and later in an Athlon 64 build without any problems. I uploaded some pics of it here: https://imgur.com/a/y3gnxPK.
Now, I do have a few other psus laying around. I just don't know if they could handle the +5v for the Athlons. The other psus I have are a few 430watt Seasonics (s12II bronze), a 520watt Seasonic (M12II), a pcpc silencer 750, an enermax galaxy 1000watt and a Seasonic x1050. I do have a few older psus which I haven't looked at yet. One is in a compaq deskpro (p2 350), one is in an ibm intellistaion m pro (dual p2 333) and I have one in an ibm intellistaion z pro (dual p4 xeon).
