Default Psu

I have a couple of questions.
Will a 20 + 4 pin main connector fit a 24 pin motherboard?
Is there a problem with getting a high voltage PSU even if you aren't going SLI? For instance, is it a bad idea to get this PSU with these components?

Also, are there enough cables that come with that PSU for all of my hardware?

Everything that you have there should work with that PSU no problem. There are really no high voltage PSU's I think that you are confusing that with power. The voltage that you get from the outlet in the wall is as high as it gets, and then you PSU converts it is DC voltage to be used by your machine.

Once again everything that comes with that power supply should be A O.K.

Happy Gaming!

Okay thank you, and the main power pin will be okay right? I just want to make sure.

Yes the main power connector, being 20+4, was designed to work with either a 20 or a 24 pin main power connector, on the motherboard.

Actually, 700W is too much power for your system.

Yes, I have heard that 700W is too much but I don't see why it would be a problem.

I looked around for a different power supply and found these two:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16817153040http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16817153040

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817812004

Which one is better? I compared the two and I am leaning more towards the Thermaltake one. It says that it is Dual Core ready, is there something that makes that different from the other one? I will be getting the Core 2 Processor. Please keep in mind that I will be upgrading my system in the future and I really don't want to have to spend an extra $100-$200 on a new PSU. Thank you.

Also, what do the peripheral connectors do? Connect to fans? And what else?
