You can probably find a nice 500w FS Nortron PSU for $50 that's got 24 pins.
Screwing with the PSU is never a good idea, because if it messes up, it'll often take other components with it.
well your not really screwing with the psu, or making any modifications.... You just plug it into the upper 20...
It even says to do so in most LGA775 mobo manuals, when it says what to do if you lack a 24pin PSU.
