    I am building a PC for my dad, and when i ordered the PSU the site said was ATX 24 Pin Powersupply, but it only has 20 Pins, and motherboard has 24 Plugs, Can you use the 20 Pins in the 24 Plugs? It wont have a PCI-Express videocard, my dad no gamer hes got onboard video a Nvidia 6100. so will this work or do i need an adapter

    You'll need an adapter but it's not recommended. always use a native 24 pin powersupply if the mobo requires it. cheaping out on a good psu is a common mistake that can cause problems down the road
