Ok, I got an Emachines 1331G computer threw a GT9800 Nvidia video card in it and was going to put a Corsair TX850W power supply in it.

Get it outta the box and hooked up except one problem: There is no CPU 4 pin plug-in from power supply which plug's into the motherboard. Great gotta return the PSU.

Now another problem, I cannot find a PSU with a CPU motherboard plug-in once again the plug is 4 pin.

Help!

Why would you put a 850w psu in a emachines with 9800GT? I think 400w would have been overkill. Psu's don't run very efficent that way.

Ummm, I think your wrong. The 9800GT has a 400watt minimum according to factory specs. I had a 430watt in the machine and the card ran like crap....new or old games it didn't matter. Cut start-up down to 4 processes and services down from 48 to 26 along with firwall diasable and anti-virus disable before going to online game. Huge lag, ping spikes from 50 to over 200 plagued me until I got this 850w PSU.

Thanks for the link, feel like a dunce now LOL. My 430PSU had a clearly marked CPU plug-in, this Corsair does not so thus the confusion. Thanks for the help!

Actually, he's not.
Your 430w psu may have been crap or may have been defective, but a decent, functioning 430w would be more than sufficient.
