    Default reuse a old parts is safe?

    Greetings friends, i need some help once again, i just finish building my 2º PC, everything working fine, however i am resusing two pecs, a DVI 22 inch acer monitor (bought in june 2010), and a wireless keyboard combo "logitech mx 5000" (bought in 2007), both are in good condition and working fine, and my idea is to update this parts in a few months,howewer even in good condition there is some deterioration, and that's worries about, especially the USB receiver from my keyboard, so my doubt is, if for example the chip controller inside of the usb receiver just burn out or something like that, can this possible damage my PC? and in the same case has the monitor, can do any damage to the GPU?

    Those parts... if they die, they die. You're fine.

    It's not like a PSU where an older unit can blow up and take out other electronics.
