    title says it.

    the motherboard is a pci express ht2000. I want to upgrade to a 500w power supply, but I've read that certain motherboards will only have room for 20 power connectors and certain power supplies may not work because of that.

    In short, I've searched a lot to no avail trying to find out if I can upgrade my power supply. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

    Is it an AMD board? AMD SW300?

    In any case, replacement power supplies often come with both types. But you could always count them, too.

    Any power supply with a 20+4 motherboard main connector will work. The +4 connector just snaps apart from the 20 pin connector.

    Have to concur here. A new PSU will work fine with you board. Any decent unit will provide more connectors than you need.
