    PSU for new build

    Just placing final orders for new system - as specced in My System

    Final bits are case and PSU

    The PSU is what I'm concerned about at the moment.
    Some cases include one (e.g. AntecSonata has a decent 500W PSU)
    But the MoBo uses a 24pin ATX2 socket.
    I think that the antec PSU has a 20 pin plug

    This won't go together will it?
    So the best bet would be a case with no PSU and then a separate PSU.
    Is that right ?

    These feel like dumb newbie questions (which I'm not really) but I'm trying to stick to my budget but I also don't want to end up with a rubbish PSU - I know how important this is.

    That was why I like the Antec cases, because they have good PSUs.
    Just not sure if they'll work with the MoBo (Asus P5KC, iP35, S 775)

    I'm planning on air cooled o/c later too

    Any ideas/advice

    TIA !
    Nick
