Default Re: Will this PSU work?

A four pin will work unless you have a very power hungry cpu or you are overclocking a bunch.

Take a look in the motherboard manual as they will usually tell you witch 4 pins to use on the mb if you only have a 4 pin psu?

But, I would still prefer to have an 8 pin plug if I was buying a new psu.

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies
$99 with $10 MIR

That should last for a few gpu upgrades.

Actually this is a great deal for $99
Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling S75QB 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7 - Power Supplies

Way more power than you need but these are some more powerful great psu's If you plan on upgrading to better gpu's and running sli or xfire these would be great.

a) You cannot always trust newegg reviews.
b) If you want to trust them 77% of 637 total gave 5 eggs. Find another psu with close to that many reviews and that percentage of top scores.
c) PC Power and Cooling and Corsair are 2 of the finest psu makers out there. I have a corsair and would gladly have a pcp&c in my system and no others. Sure you can get a little better but at an exorbitant price.

case in point:
Newegg.com - ENERMAX INFINITI EIN720AWT 720W ATX12V/ EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies
