i would get a 24 pin since you can use it with a 20-pin mobo and you can use the 24 in the future

antec or thermaltake make good psus that arent too expensive

thermaltake comes with a 20 pin to 24 adapter I beileve, mine did but mines the 560w pure power.......still though I got a friend with a DFI ultra-d nf4 board who uses a 20pin connector in a 24pin motherboard, and I guess a lot of people use it with no probs because I believe uzi9mm does too....guess it mainly depends if you're running SLI or otherwise just have a lot of power being drawn from the mobo, but he also isn't OC'ing his CPU (my friend that is)
