I have been using everyone's advice and picking better suited components (I hope) but I ran into something; the power supply I am looking at says it's motherboard socket is 20+4 pin and the Motherboard I am looking at says 24 pin. I assume the +4 means the power supply would accommodate either a 20 pin or a 24 pin Motherboard, correct? And if so would I need an adapter or "special" cable?

It'll be fine.
20+4 simply means it's 24 pins with 4 detachable for older systems that only have a 20 pin power connector.

That's what I was assuming, but just wanted to check. Thanks!
