Got it today. Started checking out the cables from the psu and i have a query
My old PSU has a cable coming out of it that goes into the motherboard. It goes into
ATX 12V power connector which is a female that takes 4 pins.
If it is labelled it might be on the link i sent you for the motherboard. (number 2)
There is not a cable coming from the new PSU that would plug into that.
Everything else would be fine but that power connector would be empty.
I don't know what to do now, can;t seem to find any vids on installation.
Will wait to see if you have any ideas.

Just checked that link and it is the square 4 pin slot at the top right just below the orange eSATAII connector.

Not to worry. I rang novatech tech support and the Corsair had an 8 pin connector which i just had to put into the same slot the four pin
one was in. Did think about that but wasn't sure and didn't want to risk doing some damage.
Can't thank you enough for your help and recommendations. It is amazing now. I now have the graphics i thought i was getting when i
bought the original card. I can move about ingame on max settings without it all lagging and such like. :thumbsup:
I love this website :cheers:
