Is there a converter I can get at stores that will fix this for me or am I just going to A: have to deal or B: go out and spend another but-load on another PSU.

I have seen two FAQ's in the past two days that had the Antec truepower II on the list of compatable PSU so, I don't think there will be much of a problem. What yall think.

Thanks much. The only real problem I have left now is that dang 4pin socket then that comp in my profile is (or should ) be up and running.

Thanks much all!
I have this same PSU and it's been great so far. Only gripe is the cabling could have been wrapped, or at least less twisted coming out of the PSU. I think the extra 30W is good to have if you ever wanted to use SLI. With cards like yours u'd be drawing alot of power, ~400W on just the video.

I've heard DFI mobos, in particular, NF4 LPs are very picky about PSUs. I've also heard that DFI dont support the use of psu converters of any kind. If possible, I'd buy a PSU with a native 24 pin connector and that other connector you dont seem to have.

Good Luck.

you're very close! except you don't pop the extra 4 pins off the end of your main 20+4pin atx mobo connector. just leave it connected and plug all 24pins into your mobo. (your mobo is a 24pin mobo so you'll want to use all 24pins)

Then find that other plug I was telling you about. there's a pic you can access from that link I gave you. And you'll want to plug that other 4pin plug (the 12v cpu one) into the other power plug on your mobo. (the 4pin one that is directly above the 24pin on the picture you gave us)
