Hello,

I'm currently running a GTX 750 1GB paired with a i3-4160 and 8gigs of ram +2tb hdd.. But i'm needing a new motherboard because this one runs on a 14-pin ancient ass atx connector so I'm wondering if anyone know's a "cheap" (preferrably) motherboard which can hold a: i3-4160 with a RX 470 4GB (because upgraded gpu) with a 8gigs of ram (1 stick) and 2tb hdd...

Sidenote: Currently running some weird ass prebuilt motherboard... Micro-ATX (Bad picture but here: http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20151113/40571333d58ae0dd566cb673151268ad.jpg )

Actually it is the: Medion akoya P2320 MD 8894

Yes, im referring to teh MB you linked.
Doesn't matter. It's related to motherboard design. And all modern PSUs have one.

I have heard, that if incorrect it could fry your Motherboard... and at the moment i cant afford much down time on my pc because of schoolwork so I'd prefer a "simple" fix such as a new motherboard instead

Like i said, get one for 15 bucks and it won't cause you such issues.

Just something to add, i'm not 100% sure my motherboard is Micro-atx.. If anyone could detect atx or micro-atx or mini-atx in the picture i linked in the original thread..

https://azerty.nl/8-5602-640801/gigabyte-h81m-s2pv-moederbord.html <-- are you referring to this motherboard? Anyway thanks in advance for the effort you've put into my question / thread :)

(Also side question: I saw that hte motherboard has a 8pin cpu power connector, so comes with my psu.. Is i t a problem if you fit in a 8pin cpu connector if it only needs 4 (since that is what it runs on now as well)
