WoW thanks for the fast answer I appreciate it it.. bear with me please because I'm still learning but in haste I bought an Ultra Ls400 and the cableing isn't the same as whats in the machine how do I verify that type of thing, is there a universal standard for lengths and types of connections or do I verify before ordering.. I apologize if that doesnt make much sense but I'm not sure how else to phrase

Ultra LS is not a quality unit so return it to where you got it from.

Typically with modern psu's, they'll usually have a 20+4pin motherboard connector, 2 4 pin eps12v motherboard connectors, 1 or more 6 pin (or 6+2 / 8 pin) pci-e connectors for graphic cards, and a mix of sata/molex connectors for fans/harddrives etc.

Also considering PSU's is that you get what you paid for. You pay for cheap stuff, you get cheap stuff. But theres a big factor in the fact that cheap PSU's tend to blow up and KILL your computer so theres a reason we always recommend quality PSU's from reputable companies tested by reputable individuals.

I always recommend Seasonic, XFX, Antec, and Corsair because they're consistently producing/selling quality power supplies that is well tested, high quality, and is reputable. Never skimp on the PSU.
