Should I switch a PSU?

Hello, good day.

So for a lot of time now, I had my old computer up to date, and obviously, I want a new computer, now I've arranged all the components and I already have a PSU on my current PC(old) which is the SS(SeaSonic)-750JS. Now since it's 750 watts it will be capable of standing the power of my future PC, all I'm asking is to check if it's okay, if it won't have any problems with my PC build, the power supply is very old so I'm afraid that it won't work because you know, the power supply is old and it's going to how some bottleneck the whole system, thanks.

Depends on the age of the PSU, if it's over 5 years I'd use a new PSU for a new system because PSU degrade over time. Especially as Seasonic have discontinued that PSU. One would tend to ask why it was discontinued, if a PSU is popular and has nothing fundamentally wrong with it I'd imagine it'd stay in production.
