You missed some good sales over the last few weeks....

Here's an OCZ 500w unit for $25 AR with free ship. It isn't the best PSU but will suit your needs fine. However, if you want future expandability, I would recommend other PSUs.

Yes, you will need two. It should come with 1 y splitter for an alternate way to power your card if you dont have enough PCI-E connectors. Have you already purchased a PSU?

Yup, the card comes with a two 4-pin Molex to 6-pin PCIe adapter. You can just use that.

Again, there are better PSU out there. There's a Corsair 650w for $70 AR at www.buy.com. However, your build seems to be a lower budget and without a focus on maximum performance/overclocking. Being the case, I recommended the lower price unit.

oh didn't see the adapter. I will have my new board today later how many overclocking options does it have? And my case now is a Dell dimension 5100 case with stock heat sink and fan. and my power supply is the 700w rocketfish with 120mm fan. How far do you think i could oc my pentium 4 521 with this cooling? And will my psu die if i oc it? my current card is 8600 GT 1.5 gb of 677mhz ram.

The G31 is not for overclocking and Biostar really does not produce overclocking products. Your overclocking will be limited (if any).

Again the Rocketfish 700w is a mediocre 500w PSU. You can overclock all you want with it since your system won't ever pull more than 400w. Temperature is dependent more on your environment and specifics so just monitor it.

What do you mean? CPU thermal sensors are built into the CPU. It maybe that your current motherboard can't read the sensor. Virtually all current mobos can though.
