1 x Main connector (20+4Pin)
1 x 4 Pin ATX 12V
1 x 8 Pin EPS 12V
6 x Peripheral
6 x SATA
1 x Floppy
2 x PCI-E

so this means it only has 1x 4 pin for cpu ....??

The pci-e graphics connector is 6 pin only. Antec makes good ps, but one reviewer complained about the fan noise level. I hate noise.

The Antec Earthwatts 650 power supply comes with two small connectors for the motherboard. One is 4 pin connector and one is an 8 pin connector. You can plug the 8 pin connector into your motherboard and ignore the 4 pin connector. Or if your motherboard only requires a 4 pin connection, then you can plug in the 4 pin connector and ignore the 8 pin connector. It just depends on which connection is on the motherboard.

The power supply also comes with two PCI-e connectors for video cards. One is a 6 pin connector and one is a 6+2 pin connector. The 6+2 pin connector can be used for either a 6 pin video card connection or an 8 pin video card connection. It can be used either way.

Good Luck
