Here is my Motherboard.

So i decided to get a new graphics card. Which then turned into me also getting a PSU. I've never really messed with a computer like this before. I have a micro atx board. I opened up my case. Moved the optical drive so i could see where my PSU connects. I only saw the big 20 pin connector. No 4 pin. Can a PSU with a 20+4 pin work with a motherboard without the 4 pin? Im probably wrong and just didnt see it. But i want to make sure before i spend the money.

The 20+4 pin is to go in the 20pin socket. ignore the extra 4 pins.

Don't forget there will be another, separate 4 pin for the CPU.

You have a Micro ATX Board that doesnt require the 4 pin connector. it will work fine without connecting the 4 pin.

Anyone know how good of a PSU this is? Its extra cheap but the reviews iv read on other sites have been pretty good.

Unrealistically cheap no-name PSU... that usually means it's bad.
