With the exception of the voltage going to the Ram shown to be too high and the bogus +12V reading everything looks fine.

 

The PSU is old and if me would have been replaced before fitting the new video card, if you like your gaming, new PSU, a quad core CPU and 8GB of good Ram would be the way to go, attached the PSU tolerance table for you to check if you ever need to.

 

Voltage
CPU CORE: 
0.992 V
MEMORY CONTROLLER: 
1.664 V
+3.3V: 
3.344 V
+5V: 
4.892 V
+12V: 
0.768 V
-12V: 
-12.416 V
-5V: 
-0.256 V
+5V HIGH THRESHOLD: 
3.602 V
CMOS BATTERY: 
3.296 V
CPU: 
0.992 V

Thanks for your help! Appreciated!

edit: One last question: Is there any good PSU that you think would fit in my computer nicely and costs less than 120 euros?

Got a link to a computer hardware supplier that you can purchase/order from, all being well we should be able to find you a PSU + an additional case cooling fan for under €120

 

You are welcome btw :)  

 

Edit to add;

 

PSU CORSAIR CX500 - 80 PLUS BRONZE CERTIFIED 500W

 

AKASA AK-FN078 SLIMLINE PWM FAN 120MM 4 pin type which means that you can control the fan speeds, must be connected to the Sys Fan 2 header on the MB, see MB manual here
