Default Power Supply/Power Connector

Hello, i am looking to build a new computer with an ASrock motherboard(http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813157083).
The specifications say that it takes a 20 pin connector from the power supply, but when i look at the pictures it seems to also have a 4 pin port for a 4 pin connector. Can anyone clerify if the 4 pin port is optional or i need to buy a PSU with a 20+4 pin connectors. Thans in advance.

It takes a 20 pin connector, The 4 pin port on the mobo is for something else that your PSU should have a connector for.
