PSU troubles

Last response: in Components

I have a Liteon PS6301 08A PSU in my PC. I am looking for an update with 400-500watts max. Looked at a few and I have noticed there is different wiring setups. My PSU has a 4-pin 12v plug going to the motherboard. A lot of the PSUs I've seen don't have that same plug. Please help me find what I'm looking for. Thanks in advance

You didn't mention your budget, but here's a nice 430 on sale:

I think all PSU's with the 8-pin connectors can be broken into two 4-pin connectors. (Just snaps into two 4-pin connectors)

But I double checked with the manual for this one:

"The EPS12V power connector has a detachable 4-pin mechanism in order to
support either an 8-pin socket or a 4-pin “P4/12V” socket on the motherboard."

Most modern power supplies come with a 4+4 connector
