Theres a 20-pin connector and another 4-pin connector. If the motherboard is 20-pin, then you only use the 24-pin connector. If the motherboard is 24-pin, like in your case, then you plug in both of them.

If you want a much nicer PSU for just a little more, check the one I am selling (it's in my sig). It would be a wise choice in the long run. It will work with your setup.

It would also be $45 more for not much more. Forton + 36A = Coolness.

Sorry to ruin your purchase But i guess he already said his budget was $50.

True, but if he is willing to go over, it would be a better PSU. It would provide much cleaner power with more stable voltages. The +12v rail on it never went under 12.02v at max load overclocked for me. And you know how they say weight can be used to measure quality to a degree? Well it weighs 7lbs, the same weight as the PCP&C 510 sli. That actually surprised me.

I don't really care about this, but Forton is about as good as they come.
