Not 100% sure what you are asking, but the motherboard needs 2 separate power connections.
There is a 24pin connector (right hand edge of the motherboard you linked), and a 4pin connector (top left corner). Some motherboards use an 8pin version so PSUs come with a connector that fits both, does the same job.
Cables should be long enough but occasionally depending on the way everything fits together they can come up quite close.
Power is sufficient, though it will potentially limit you in terms of future upgrades.

Oh, if you haven't bought the components yet, give the CPU a rethink. FX6300 is around the same price and should give you a solid performance boost.

oh ok i will think about it and what you said in the first post i should buy a new psu because the connectors are in diffrent places or what because its detachable 4pin so that's great but will it work 100%?
February 9, 2013 2:45:56 PM

and what i mean is are the 4 pin an 21 pin connectors long enough to connect to the motherboard if my case has a psu slot at the bottom of the case?

It's not detachable as such, it splits. I think you are confused about what cables go where.

Motherboards have two power connectors, on separate cables.
One is supplied by a 20+4 connector that looks like this -


One is a 12V supply that requires a 4 OR 8 pin connector. Most PSUs provide this -


Both of these need to be connected.
Length of PSU cables is rarely an issue, but issues can arise if your case has an elaborate cable management system.

I think this is the best entry level PSU in the Uk right now -
http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1450s...
XFX Core 450, £37

Alternatively, if you want the potential for higher end graphics cards in the future (that require more than 1 PCIe connector), the XFX Core 550 is £48

There is nothing wrong with the Corsair units, but without the rebates the Americans seem to get on them most of the time, they are priced similarly to the XFX and offer less power and quality.

will do u justice better

no need for 6cores.

February 10, 2013 5:56:35 PM

oh ok thank you really much and this will last me a long time do you think? because i want the processor and m/b to be good so i can have it for about 4-5 years and then build a new pc
February 10, 2013 5:57:49 PM

and also i can see that the 4pin connector is at the top of the m/b and my case has bottom mounted psu and do you think the psu you gave me will be long enough to connect it?

yes it will. most games barely use 4cores. and i got u a solid mobo and processor. i would of recommand 6cores but doesnt fit in ur budget.

u can always upgrade to a 8core down the road :) 

4cores is plenty and u can overclock it to 4.5 with that cooler :D
