Compatible PSU / P5Q Pro

  1. So i have a noob question, but im getting quite confused looking at PSU's for my Asus P5Q PRO motherboard.

    The manual says it needs a 24 pin main connector and an 8 pin 12v cpu connector.

    The pictures on newegg for the PSU's usually just show a picture of the main connector and the cpu power but it just shows a 4 pin, but under "features" it will say either say "1 x 12V(4/8Pin)" or "1 x 12V(P4)" and "1 x 12V(8Pin)" below it.

    Do all ATX12V / EPS12V PSUs come with an 8 pin 12v connector or what?

    Also when it tells how many rails it has whether it be single or 3 or whatever, what does that mean. I'd like to make sure i get a PSU thats compatable.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    And this post wasnt meant to ask what PSU to buy. It was meant to find out about the form factor and wnating to know if all ATX12V / EPS12V PSU's come with an 8 pin cpu connector.
