Power supply replacement question

I have a pc that needs a new power supply. It's a factory Lenovo, nothing fancy... I also have several old computers laying around. I want to see if I can just use the power supply from one of those but I'd like to be sure about compatibility before I start experimenting.

The first pic is the one I want to replace

Is this a viable replacement ?

Plug things in properly and go.the one you want to install meets the needs of the pc.if you start adding things that take more juice you will need a bigger one but they are everywhere,like ebay

If the form factor is the same and it has the same or more output power than the broken one ( it does ), and it has all of the correct connections there is no reason why it wouldn't work.

Check the molex connectors, does it have enough? Does the molex connector that connects to the board match? It most likely does.
