I got a new motherboard, CPU and RAM today. the problem is, the new motherboard uses an 8 pin power connector (in addition to the 24 pin ATX connector). My current power supply only has a 4 pin power connector.
I can get an adapter from a molex connector, however I also want to be able to use the current Sempron system (got it running with the AGP motherboard, and DDR1 RAM), mainly for folding.
I don't want to spend over AU$200, but I do want a good quality power supply; I would prefer a modular one.
Right now, I'm looking at the Hiper 580W. it costs about $185, which is about the most I want to spend. Does anybody know if it has an 8 pin power connector?
and if not, can you get one for it? (one that goes directly to the PSU, not a molex adapter)
Also, what other PSU's do you think are worth looking at?
the sites I normally use to get parts from are www.staticice.com.au
(price search engine) or www.msy.com.au
(they normally have really good prices)
