Welcome to Tech Forums, Finis!

PSU connections are not one size fits all. All the different components have different sized connections. And they all are designed to fit in only one way.

We can help you find the right connections to their components. Just ask the questions.

To get an idea (Find out which of these you have/need, and we'll find something that will work for you.) :

On a side note : Is the computer you're upgrading a prebuilt computer, or did someone build it for you? Chances are with the upgrading, you're getting more powerful components, so an upgraded power supply may be necessary.
