Benz Posted March 9, 2005 Share Posted March 9, 2005 Posted about this somewhere else, but I'm thinking this is the best place for this: Ran into a snag with the new computer. The new motherboard fits and is very sweet. It's all secured in the case. Only problem is... The Power Supply Unit (PSU) has a 20-pin motherboard plug. The motherboard I got requires a 24-pin hook up. I looked on the motherboard's website to see if they had any advice. Apparently there's adapters you can get that go from 20-24 pin. The site said it would work, but after long use it would cause instability with the Express PCI expansion slots (Where I'm going to put my new Video Card - nVidia 6600 w/ 256 megs RAM - Express PCI slots on my board have a 2000 mhz bus speed. = very fast graphics loading) So, the only powersupply I can get is one that has 24-pin Motherboard hookup and the additional standard 4-pin. So far I've only found one made by Toppower for $66. If anyone is really bored and feels like helping, help me search for a 24-pin power supply - needs to be 450 watt + . Soon as I get that, I'll be all set to hook it up, then I'll need CPU, Memory (1 gig), Video Card, Hard Drive, and Windows XP. Man I gotta get a job. lol Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
