I bought an Antec TRUE430 ATX 430W Power Supply 115/230 V UL, TUV, CB, VDE, FCC CLASS B, DEMKO, NEMKO, SEMKO - Retail

and i bought a EPoX EP-9NPA+Ultra Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

my PSU has a 20 pin connector and my motherboard has a 24 pin connector i was wondering if the 20 pin can be plugged into the 24 pin and work properly>???

thanks

Yes. Just do yourself the favour, and read the manual very, very carefully. There is a special four pin connector that must be plugged in properly. You could potentially ruin your computer in a spectacular light show. Please, read the manual.

Yeah. Make sure you install them the right way. The motherboard manual should tell you all you need to know.
