I have a AM@ biostar TForce 550 mobo. I will use a AMD 3800 dual core cpu and 2 gig mem. Should I hookup to 24 pin on the mobo or just use 20 pin? Is the 24 pin just for Pentium 4 or does it give extra power to the PCI E card. I know I have to hook up the 4 pin 12 v by the cpu. Bruce

If the board takes 24 pin in the socket then use the 24 pin as pci-express slot requires the additional power.Goodluck.
