Here's my MOBO:

Here's my PSU:

It means that it has a 20pin connector and also a 4pin 12v connector. If you read the reviews on that link you provided there is people that had the same question as you and they confirmed it's a 20pin after they received it.

You can get an adaptor, but you're probably better off getting a 24 pin PSU. I saw an adaptor setup blowup awhile back, it took the motherboard and a few other things with it. Maybe it wasnt the adaptor's fault, but I just cant trust it after that happened.

Great to know now, after I ordered the parts. I posted my build here and on another forum, asking to be critiqued. Apparently no one caught that problem. (edit)

Good spec on the 12v for sure... I'm just not firmiliar with the brand.
Yesterday I received a Sunbeam NUUO 550, very good specs, excelent reviews ... $80 at xpcgear
