Default which power supply? 20 pin or 20+4

My power suply took a poo. I need a new one. Threw browsing all these power supplies I noticed that some have a 20 pin main connector and some have a 24 pin main connector. Which one do I need or how do I find out? I have an AMD Socket A ASUS motherboard.

My puter:
CPU - INTEL Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz
MEM - 4 GB (1BGX4) G.SKILL PC2 6400
HD - 2 SAMSUNG 500GB 7200 RPM
OS - Windows Vista 64Bit

You only need a 20-pin, however if you find a good quality psu that you can afford and it has a 24 pin get it. Doesnt really matter. Plus the mobo connectors are keyed so you shouldnt be able to plug it in the wrong way.
