Will my P4P800 non-Deluxe work for this PSU?

Hello,

I don't know much about power supply unit and am currently looking to buy a new Cooler Master Real Power 450W to replace my generic 450W PSU, which does not generate enough power and causes games to black-out.

However, I do not know if this PSU will work with my mobo. According to Cooler Master's support page (http://www.coolermaster.com/index.php?LT=english&Language_s=2&url_place=faq&ftype=&xs=7&serial=131), the PSU uses ATX 12V v2.0 standard and my motherboard, and P4P800 non-Deluxe version is not included in the compatibility list (link above). (The deluxe version of P4P800 and others such as SE are listed, but not non-deluxe)

So, my question is, does that means that the PSU will not compatible with my motherboard? If so, could anyone recommend me a similar and stable PSU for me that is compatible with my P4P800?

Thanks,
Tim

Thanks for the reply. My motherboard has 20 pins but the PSU has 24 pins. Will the PSU be compatible with my motherboard after using a 24-to-20 pin adapter?

Thanks.
