Is the AcBel 350w PSU enough for the ASUS M11BB-US001O Desktop?

Uncle gave me his old computer, which I believe is this item:

Amazon.com : ASUS M11BB-US001O Desktop : Desktop Computers : Electronics

Details that it lists:

Processor: 3.7 GHz A-Series A10-6700
RAM: 8 GB DDR3
Memory Speed: 1333 MHz
Hard Drive: 1024 GB
Number of USB 2.0 Ports: 6
Number of USB 3.0 Ports: 2

Brand Name: Asus
Item model number: M11BB-US001O
Hardware Platform: PC
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Item Weight: 20.4 pounds
Item Dimensions L x W x H: 9.50 x 20.20 x 18.90 inches
Color: Black
Processor Brand: AMD
Processor Count: 1
Computer Memory Type: DDR3 SDRAM
Hard Drive Interface: Serial ATA
Hard Drive Rotational Speed: 7200 RPM
Optical Drive Type: DVD Super Multi
Audio-out Ports (#): 1

The case had already been opened, so I took a look inside to check if everything was good. That's when I noticed the AcBel 350w PSU.

So my question is, is this PSU good enough for the computer, or should I look into getting a new PSU? If so, any recommendations?

That's a 65 watt AMD processor.

I assume the PSU is the one that Asus put in the machine at the factory.

I see that AcBel model selling for $10 new on ebay.

It has an output of 216 watts on the 12 volt rail.

It certainly isn't a PSU I would buy, but it's "enough" in terms of power, assuming the PC has the original stock components in it, with nothing else added.

You could certainly get a superior power supply of 300 or 400 watts for $50 or maybe less. But if the PC is just a hand-me-down that you don't want to spend money on, I'd probably stay with the PSU unless I had obvious problems.

Here's a couple of decent choices if replacing:

CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

Rosewill CAPSTONE Series CAPSTONE-450 450W Continuous @ 50C, 80 PLUS GOLD Certified, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active - PFC Power Supply - Retail - Newegg.com

Alright, thanks for the advice.

I just plan to use it with an 19 inch Acer monitor, TP-Link TL-WN722N wireless adapter, HP x4000 Wireless Mouse, an Xbox 360 gamepad, Huion tablet, and some Logitech Z200 speakers. I don't believe any of the components are changed.

I'll look into those suggested PSU if they ever go on a big sale though.
