Alright well thats all i need ill probly be ordering this in the next week and ill update accordingly.
Thx again for the great help!!!
Alright guys ive got everything in and almost put together but ive hit a little problem...
The board has a 24 pin power connecter plus an additional 4 pin 12v wich the power supply has but it wont reach from the power supply to the connector so just wondering if i absolutely need it or not. Another problem is the adapter the 4850 came with isnt long enough to reach the boards connector, but the power supply has a 6 pin connector labeled PC-E so i think that may work but could u guys clarify that?
Also in my workplace i dont have acess to a monitor so is it okay to power it up without a moniter, keyboard exc?

sorry i diddnt understand what you were saying
Well i got the power cable to reach the connector but i still dont know about the power for the 4850...
As i said befor i dont have an os yet but is it alright to turn it on to see if everything is spinning and lighting up?
