What PSU is it? Some of the newer ones have 4 detachable pins at the end of the 24 pin connector (e.g. Antec TPII 550). Pop off those "extra" pins, and the PSU works fine on a 20 pin mobo. You can probably extend that logic to say that you can have the "extra" four pins overhanging the 20 pin socket, though I wouldn't necessarily try this without confirmation that this works. There are 20 to 24 pin adapters on the market, but I'm not sure there are 24 to 20 pin ones or if such a beast would even be necessary.

yeah check if your new psu has the 20+4pin ATX connector. many new psus are doing that so that they are backwards compatable. if not then this is what you need:

yep, no prob. even if your psu doesn't have the 20+4 pin connector it might be good to keep the new psu anyway and use the new psu w/ the adaptor so that you won't have to buy a new psu when you upgrade your rig.
