Post Compatability Issues

I'm going to order some parts very soon and thought it wise to check there compatable. I'm going to order the following:

Gigabyte K8N51PVMT-9 Socket 939
AMD Athlon64 3500 Venice Retail
Aspire X-Qpac Micro Atx Case Silver

However, the PSU shipped with the Qpac has a 12v (P4) adapter, is this compatible with the motherboard? Also the PSU has a 20-pin adapter and the mother board has a 24-pin socket, is it safe to use adapters such as these?

Thanks for the help in advance! Any other glaringly obvious flaws in my plan please tell me! I always miss the obvious

ok, give me a LINK to all of these things.

if you mean this processor:

it should be compatible with your motherboard.

the thing im worried about is wether your motherboard will fit in your case. if your motherboard is an ATX mobo, then it wont fit in a Micro-ATX case.

please give me links to your 3 items.



And above all else this, to thine own self be true.
