Having decided its time to upgrade my psu, im a little confused with the different ATX connections.
My mobo (GA-MA78GM-S2H rev 1.0) requires ;
1 x 24-pin ATX main power connector
1 x 4-pin ATX 12V power connector
However the psu's ive been looking at all seem to have 4+4pin connectors which im not 100% is what i need?
can anyone shed some light on this please?
also feel free to recommend a modular psu, ideally needs to be under £100 and 2x pci-e as well as sata and molex connectors, cables need to be sleeved.

the 4+4 will fit either a 4pin CPU power connector, or a newer 8pin.
Make sure you go for a name brand and don't skimp on the PSU. Corsair, Seasonic, etc.
