  2. Thank you, you saved me from buying a 600 watt power supply and spending too much.
  3. Will you be using an FX 8-core processor?
  4. The 550w will be more than enough for your specs.
  5. But the specific one you listed will not work because it is a 20+4 pin and my mobo is a 24 pin
  6. Yes it will work , 20 + 4 =24 , 100% compatible.
  7. Cable Connectors

    Fixed FDD : Molex to 2

    Fixed Peripheral : 6

    Fixed 6-pin PCI-E : 1

    Fixed 6+2-pin PCI-E : 1

    Fixed ATX12V / EPS12V : 8 & 4+4 pin

    Fixed Motherboard Connector : 20+4 Pin < This is your 24 pin , your all set no issues.

    Fixed SATA : 9
  8. Why do they differentiate between 20+4 pin and 24 pin if they are the same?
  9. SAME.
