It has a 24 to 20pin adapter, so is a 24pin PSU.


Do you want to count them?

To be honest, I don't really care. I have a 520w Powerstream. You said he needed a 24-pin PSU, but that is not even an issue if he goes with the OCZ since it is both.

Cool it lads and/or ladettes! I think I'm going with the OCZ PowerStream 520W and (sadly enough) I counted the pins and its got 24.:nerd:. So, here is roughly what my system is looking like so far:

- AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+
- DFI Lanparty NF4 SLi-DR
- BFG GeForce 7800GTX or (to cut osme big costs) 1x BFG GeForce 6800GT
- OCZ PowerStream 520W
- 1Gb OCZ DDR PC-3200 Dual Channel Gold

Stuff From old computer
- 52x32x52x CD-RW
- NEC DVD +/- R/RW
- 250Gb 7200RPM HDD (IDE ATA-133)
- 120Gb 7200RPM HDD (IDE ATA-133)

Don't worry, Trifid and I are good.

Like said, the Powerstream is both a 24-pin & 20-pin. You just clip on the additional 4 pins if you require a 24-pin connector, otherwise, just use the existing 20 pins.

With your system, I'm beginning to wonder if you would be better off with a 600w Powerstream. I really don't know. A 520w may be enough power; I'm just not sure.

pretty god, but make sure you get the 7800, its a huge improvement from the 6800gt.

To those who are wondering, the 7800GTX uses less power than the 6800ULtra.
