Default LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D PSU?

I am going to build a computer with a DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D

Anyway, I need to use a 24 pin PSU with at least 480watts. Of course the $70.00, 480 watt case I wanted Has a 20-pin connector So now I need to buy a different PSU and maybe a different case

Is the 20+4 pin connector a 24 pin connector?

Can someone recommend a good PSU for the LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D Nothing crazy, I would like to spend somewhere around $40-50 on it. I will not be overclocking yet, When I do OC I will upgrade if I have to.

Thanks

The 20+4 connector is either 20 or 24 pin depending on what you need. There is a 4 pin connector that can be connected to the 20 pin to give you 24 pins if needed.

Might I suggest you use the PSU calculator to ensure you need that much power.

I know its alittle out of your price range but the DFI forums recommend the OCZ powerstream 520W PSU. For all around best PSU for DFIs. You might just want to buy a good one now so that you dont have to buy another later.
