ok I have a motherboard that seems to have an 8 pin connector for the CPU power. my power supply has 4. The power supply is:

and the Motherboard is:
http://xfxforce.com/en-gb/products/motherb...ies/750i.aspx#2

with a CPU of:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819115041

the graphics card is so crappy and low powered that it doesn't matter here. all I want to do is make sure this PSU is not compatible before I go pickup a different one. this one came free in a case I got so getting a new one isn't a problem.

CPU = Intel i7 950
Motherboard = Asus P6X58D
RAM = Corsair XMS3 DDR3 6X 2GB
Power Supply = Corsair AX1200W
Graphics Card = GTX 580 2-way SLI

Actually, it is compatable. That doesn't mean I would ever let that junk PSU get within 10 feet of any build. The 4 pin connector fits in the 8 pin motherboard connector.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

lol yea I'm building this for my grandfather. he needs a good CPU and RAM but never uses the graphics card thus I'm giving him my old ATI X300 which this PSU could easily run. My build on the other hand this PSU couldn't even dream of running the GPU not to mention the rest of the computer. well since it works I'll finish putting the parts in. thx dude.

edit:

actually would it be a better choice to get a different PSU? I mostly don't want to finish building it and find out this one is so bad it was guaranteed to fry everything on start.
