    Count the number of pins for the motherboard power connector.

    Your power supply has 20 pins.
    Your motherboard has 24 Pins.


    Get a DVD burner instead of a combo unit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827152053

    i take it that you were gonna buy another psu anyway as cheapo case psu's usually never last. dvd burner is the next thing to do cause cdr's just cant hold much lately. that video card will work pretty well, later on you'll probably have to upgrade, but atleast you have a pciE slot for the next line of cards

    Damn is there a way to change the 20 pin to a 24 pin maybe like an adaptor or something. I don't plan on buying a new Psu unless I really have to because most of computers I use that came with Psu worked fine. Plus Im on a budget so I can't really afford to spend 40$ - 60$

    Get a better case, get a NEC dvd burner for 50$, and get a better video card ( x800 GTO2 can be modded to x850xt and only 200$, since the 6600 gt is already lagging in games like AO3, plain 6600 is even worse)

    case, antec sonata 2, or something of that sort

    Heck yea it does! Nah lol j/k. I like that case but I can't afford for a Psu, But I think there may be an adaptor to that 20 pin connector atleast I hope there is gonna keep searching Newegg . If any of you knows any good cases around 30 - 60$ with the psu with it tell me it has to have lights and clear side. Ive pretty much looked at most cases though so I doubt anyone would find one.

    There are adaptors for 20 to 24 pins. I'm not sure where to get them.
