ok so, im getting this --->

MSI K9N Neo-F Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 550 MCP ATX AMD Motherboard

and this --->

Rosewill RP500-2 ATX 2.01 500W Power Supply 115/230 V CSA, CB, TUV, FCC, UL

My biggest concern is that my motherboard says it supports ATX and my PSU says it supports ATX 2.01

is there a difference to these 2? or is my motherboard simply able to support all ATX 1-2 whatever. might be i just dont know what the additional numbers after the ATX mean. any help would be greatly appretiated.

BTW, i'm buying both of these from

It's fine, dont worry about it. The ATX on the mobo means it's a certain form factor, the ATX on the psu means it complies with the requirements of the ATX Power Supply Design Guide.

That Rosewill psu on the other hand is crap, quality wise. In fact, most, if not all, Rosewill psus are fairly low quality.

These psus are much better then that Rosewill, are just as powerful, and aren't much more expensive.
