    Why?why?why?why?why?

    Im such a dumb ass just got some new parts in the post put them together in my case. Then realised that my powersuply unit is too old to even connect it to the mobo. Now i have to wait 2/3 weeks before i can even turn it on......... Boo Hoo.

    LoL, that's going to be a serious preformance improvment if he's going from a PC with an AT powersupply to a current PC

    its an ATX but not an ATX 2.0 and the power cable thing that plugs into the mobo isnt big enough if u know wat i mean but it does fit just doesnt take up all the pin things. Will it work anyways though?

    You have a 20 pin connector and a 24 pin socket on the board.

    You can get 20 to 24 pin converters, however you should just be able to plug the thing in anyway - missing out the four pins at the bottom. That's what I'm going to do with mine.

    Bear with me while I find a picture.

    I don't know if old PCI cards will work in these new mobos. Has anyone ever tried?

    Just because it fits doesn't mean you PSU has enough juice, however.

    And no - the motherboard has no onboard grahpics adapter

    If your PC is trying to draw more power from your PSU than your PSU can handle, you stand a good chance of damaging your components. Before the PSU dies that is. Don't skimp on your PSU, you'll regret it
