Thanks in advance.

Its just the really old PSU's that have only 20pin motherboard power cables rather than the new 20+4pin (24pin) and 4+4 (4 or 8pin) power connections. Both that you listed will work fine. 1200w is a huge PSU as well, what graphics cards are you planning on running?

I know they are huge in size and i thought they needed an E-ATX to SLI since they are effectively 4 GPU's...I might be wrong though. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
