I’m building a pc for gaming but it’s turning in to a worse pc than I’d like but I’m upgrading certain part like my ram and cpu so it can at least run fortnite or the cycle. I am trying to calculate the wattage my pc will take so I know if I have to upgrade my psu

@Sammy_J,

I do like a challenge, but your not going to build any respectable gamer with the old board, circa 2006.

My first media center, the HP m8100e CTO had that board.

chipset Nvidia GeForce 6150 SE nForce 430

components        quick list

The max PSU I would suggest is the Corsair CX650, then step downward based on the max card that did run with that board, being the GTX 660.  (My was an Asus GTX 660 powered by a Rosewill 550W)

It is not compliant with any modern UEFI based GPU card.

The CPU needed for fortnite is an I5-7300U The M2n68La can not support that chip.

It can only support 4x2GB modules, the minimum for fortnite.
