what spec is it?   modern systems want ATX12V v2.x, which puts almost 
all the power on the +12V rail.   older PSU specs had more juice on the 
5V side, which is almost unused nowdays.    An ATX12V V1.x supply /can/ 
be used on a newer system, if you treat it as a smaller PSU (drawing 
say, no more than 350 watts from a 500W ATX12V v1.x)
