I just got all the parts last night to build my parents a new computer. I am using a older case that had, I installed the MOBO just fine. ASUS M2V-MX SE AM2 VIA K8M890 Micro ATX AMD is the board I got. I am trying to figure out what kind of power supply I should get, or the watt range I should look for. The case is a Micro ATX if someone has one that would work for this type of application. I also had a question on the case wires for the HDD Light. Mine I think are brown and white. I am trying to figure out which one would be + positive and - negative. I always asumed that the darker color wire is negative and the lighter color would be postive. I dont have a volt meter to test these. Theres one also for the power swtich thats green and white. I am not sure about those either. If you can give me some answers to my madness.
Also if possible, the case I have has a older power supply that just has a 20 pin connection. I need the 20 pin and the 4 pin on this board. Is there any type of a adapter that I could just buy and use instead of buying a all new power supply. I dont know the watt of the one allready in the case off hand. I can find that out later.
Any input would be great
