  1. Hello, I have an agp board right now. I want to move to pci-x. I also have a nice 20 pin psu. Almost all the pci-x mobos I have found are 24pin. ARe there and adapters or something out there I could use?

    Yes there are.

    If you Google for 20 to 24 pin psu adapters, you should find plenty. Typically, they only cost a few dollars.

    Regards Howard :)

    yes, yes, here's an example

    before you go ahead and buy one though, you need to be sure that your PSU can handle a PCI-E setup

    26 amps on the 12 volt and 550 watt should be fine :cool:

    yes, that will be more than enough power as long as it's a quality, reputible brand.
