Your board requires a ATX 12Volt V2.0 compliant power supply. It needs to have a 24 pin EATXPWR connector as well as the 4 pin ATX12V power connector. This is stated in the manual on page 2-30.
The manual recommends a minimum of 350watts but I would get a good quality power suppy of at least 500 watts. Antec or Enermax make good quality power supplies, dont settle for a cheap PSU they almost never measure up and cause instability.
As Barry R has suggested / Antec Tru Power 550 (on ebay for $100.00)
Antec and Enermax make a high quality PSU that has the most affordable price tag / if you want better you are going to have to pay double like a
PC Power & Cooling PSU or OCZ Extreme Gamer
the above PSU has PCI express video connectors as well as sata drive connectors and standard 4 pin molex connectors / all variations of mobo connectors and the 4 pin 12V cpu plug / its like Prego Spagetti Sauce ~~~ it's all in there !!??
i didnt want to start another thread, = P
I was wondering if it mattered if i had a couple of screws missing from my motherboard. you kno, the copper ones that elevates ur mobo and secures it. I have six on the bottom and 2 on top. i am missing one at the bottom and a bunch on top :4-dontkno
I have seen and operated many mobo's that werent "fully" fastened in. I dont reccomend it / but if you are careful and dont bump it much you can get away with it / a better move would be a trip to a computer shop for some matching replacement standoffs ???
