    Unfortunatly this is the only 478 pin motherboard I own, My other two P4 systems are 423 pin and my 3rd is AMD. I think I'll reorder a new board and start from there.

    I found out what the problem was. The company that I order some of my parts from (STRA8BUY.com) sent me the wrong 400 watt power suppy for my Motherboard. I put my old Compaq 300 watt PSU in and it works like a charm. Infact I'm installing Windows XP right now.

    After taking a look at one of my old P4 systems, I noticed that there was one extra 4 pin power plug-in connecting to the motherboard. My new PSU didn't have one of these adapters on it, so thats why I didn't notice the plug-in on my board before. Thanks to everyone for the advice.:thumb:

    Most half decent 350/400W PSU's should do ya but the higher the rating and the better the quality will pay in the long run (just be sure that it has the 4 pin P4 connector). ;)

    I'd put an Antec TruPower 380 or 430w in that rig. The 430w would allow a lot of headroom if you decide later to to mod the box or hang some more hardware in it later.

    I'm curious, what exactly do people run that require such large power suppies?
    I'm using my little 300 watt (Probably an untrue 300w) Compaq power supply as a substitute until I get the one I need and it seems to be running everything fine including all the extra eyecandy, like the 2 13" florecent light sticks I put inside the case and the light up fans as well as the light-up multicolored clock\thermometer that covers a third of the front of my case. Since my video card manual does state I should have at least 300 watts to run it, I'm beginning to wonder if anymore is just overkill.

    Believe me it ain't overkill as I've seen far to many small and medium PSU's fall over.
