post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just got all my new parts for my new computer.. but im waiting on my video card.. so its just sitting there half built.. and i noticed that my powersupply has 2 times 10 slots .. and the mobo has 2 times 12.. so the powersupply wont be taking up all the slots.. is that a problem?

my mobo wont boot if i dont have the +4 pins on top of the other 20. you'll just have to try it. it may not matter since my old mobo only required 20pins. just try it like i said, if not there are some cheap good power supplies on newegg, just have a look around. You'll find something that suits your sys. PS is that x1300 the card you're waiting on or that you are going to replace?

It's not a problem, it should still work anyway. But I would recommend getting a new power supply with the proper connectors if you plan on running a high end graphics card. An X1650 should be fine with just a 20 pin connector.
