http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/181248934688#payCntId

questions
1-it has 8pin power connector for cpu i think in top left corner will i be good if i connect 4pin power connector and on which side up or down?

2-will my psu still be able to handle the motherboard with that cpu and 2 ram sticks and one gt610 with two hdd's as now it can handle my g41 board with pentium dual core stuck on it.

3-will crossfire be good cause i have seen video from youtube by linus tech tips that on x16 ,x8 and on x4 it just makes little difference..

4-and how is quad gpu crossfire can be made on this board?

Crossfire which is for AMD gpus not nivdia gpu's which you have is not a good idea with that cpu. Why on earth would you get that motherboard with that cpu... you wasted alot of money gettting a high end overclocking motherboard with a non overclockable celeron. As for you powersupply you will have to tell us the model and make before we can tell you how it will run with your motherboard though if you cant plug the 8pin connecter in I would recommend just getting a new psu. Another thing the gt610 not only is not a gaming gpu it doesnt suppourt sli

1-i am noob but not that noob that i dont know that gt610 cant SLI or crossfire i know there is connector on top to crossfire or sli a graphic card

2-i am just getting a celeron to run it at least i now have a g41 board with pentium dual core 2.7 as i mentioned before i will get a better cpu later..just getting rid of pci-e 1.1..

3-so my shitty psu says this http://sishardware.com/imgs/a/a/d/d/s/ibm_lenovo_thinkc...
will upgrade it too..

just tell me will i be able to run it without blowing it up for 2-3 days..then after selling my old board cpu and psu i will get better one..s

Well if you can only fill 4 of the 8 power pins you wont be able to run the pcie bus properly so if you used integrated it could work untill you get a better psu. I never recommend multi gpu setups unless theyre with top tier gpu's which with your budget building is not likely. You would be better off with one really god gpu then 2 moderate ones. Multi gpu configurations arnt suppourted by all games and can cause alot of issues.

i will use 1 gpu gt610 before getting new psu and then i will think of getting a better gpu and if it will not give better performance then i will crossfire

so last and final question will i run it with that psu motherboard cpu gpu and psu?

You can run the motherboard cpu and psu but i doubt the gpu will work in conjuction properly as you will only fill 4 outta the 8 motherboard power pins the last 4 supply power to the pcie bus specifically
