That PSU should be compatible. Can't you go to a different place? Most stores don't like installing components that were bought elsewhere.

Your motherboard requires a 4pin and a 24pin connectors.
The SilverPower SP-B700 (according to its spec sheet, found on this page) has a 4+4pin connector; it is an 8pin connector which can be split in two, so that it is compatible with motherboards which have a 4pin plug.
If a PSU doesn't have a 24pin connector then it shouldn't be called a PSU; the SP-B700 does in fact have one.

The ATI Radeon HD6870 requires two 6pin PCIe connectors. The SP-B700 has a 6pin and a 6+2pin connector. The +2 is a detachable 2pin section which makes it compatible with 8pin PCIe plugs, when it is detached it is an ordinary 6pin connector.

Your HDD and DVDRW require SATA connectors, the SP-B700 has six.

So it is definitely compatible with your components.
It sounds like to me that the person who is trying to install it for you at the IT Store doesn't know the things which I described above.

^+1. The guy at the computer store may not be competent.
As to that PSU, it is 80+ bronze, so assuming that's not a lie (I cannot tell, but it is NOT listed at the 80plus.org site) it should be a reasonable PSU otherwise.

I live in the village, in my city there is only one computer store, I might take it out of town, looking for other computer stores

thanks for the explanation, now I am sure there are no problems with the power supply, because I will be difficult if returning to the store that I bought online.

correct sir, I bought a power supply to research first, that should buy the already minimal 80Plus Bronze
