    I am getting this motherboard...

    MOBO - http://www.microdirect.co.uk/(23288)MSI-motherboard-945P-Neo5F-LGA775-Intel-945P.aspx

    Will this power supply be ok for it? (I know I should get a good quality one but i'm on a budget!) I'm confused by all the talk of 20+4 pin connectors etc.

    PSU - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/129423/show_product_reviews

    Im going to be running a Intel Core 2 Duo E4600 on it by the way. I will also be using a SATA HDD and an IDE DVD-RW Drive (Is that possible with this board?).

    So, just want to know if the PSU will be good enough and if I can run the IDE DVD-RW Drive on it? Thanks :)

    Will it connect and does it have the correct connectors? Yes. Will it work well for you and last? Most likely not. It is a junk power supply.

    Save your money until you can buy quality parts. It makes little sense to waste money on junk now and have to buy parts again later.
