Hello there again everyone i have another questiong i am wondering if my mother board which is a DFI P4/478/533 ATX NB73-EA mother board.

Here is some info on it http://www.hwextreme.com/reviews/motherboard/dfi_nb73ea/

Can it handle the BFG tech 650watt PS unit?
I know it is way over doing it but i want a PS that will last me for the next 3 or 4 years, i am waiting for vista to come out before i upgrade to a new comp. In which case i will swap this PS into the new comp if u guys think it will work. Will their be a problem with the connectors though? it says PCI but also i have read it will work with AGP, and whats this i am reading about a 20+4 pin connector? i looked at my connector now and it appears to be only 20.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16817702003 here is the PS i am talking about, if you have an opinion or info please help me out and speak up.

thanks

The question usually is whether the PSU will be large enough to support the components. I don't know what GPU you intend to use, but both 12V rails are rated at 20A, and 650W should be overkill, so you should be fine.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Depends, if you have only have one 12V rail then you could need more.

BFG isn't known for good power supplys though.
