Default Power supply to mother board adapter??

I had to order both a new Power supply and mother board. The mother accepts different connectors then what's on the power supply? Are there any adapters or do I have to buy another power supply?

Thanks

The mother board is an ECS K7S5A. The PS is a Linkworld model LP15-2, 230W.

But yes, the receiving connectors on the motherboard to not match the kind of connectors on the PS. So you cannot connect the two.

Is there a difference between an AT power supply and an ATX?

Just a side note, I would NOT reccommend using a 230w power supply with the K7S5a. This motherboard is extremely finnicky when it comes to power, and I would suggest that you use at least a 300w.
