The 20+4 connector is for power to your motherboard. In addition, there will be an 8-pin (sometimes 4-pin) power connector for power to the CPU. The rest are for power to the hard drives, video card, fans, and other devices.

This is a not particularly reliable, obsolete PSU from back in the day when everything was powered from the 5 volt output - note the really heavy 5 volt output.

I'd get one of these: Corsair 400CX (30 amp 12 volt rail)

More reliable, better design, greater efficiency, and more usable power output.
