    confused over PSU and mother board

    i was doing some double checking on some parts to verify that the new PSU i was gonne be ordering soon would work and im kinda at a loss...
    my current PSU is a Bester atx-250 12z which came with the PC
    and the mother board is an ECS Iris 8 which also came with the PC
    heres the part that confuses me my MB has a 20+4 pin main connector port but yet the plug thats in it is a 20 pin so this is when i looked up the PSU i have
    it has a 20 pin main connector but it also has a plug im not familiar with...a P4 X1
    heres a pic of the PSU

    so heres my question
    if i replaced it with a new PSU probably this one which has a 20+4 pin connector not a 20 and doesnt have a "P4 X1" connector would it work? o_O

    this is hardware support so i suppose this is the right section for this...

    Blah
    the 20+4 pin connector means that there is 20 pins plus 4 pins that are detachable
    the "P4 X1" is the same thing as the extra 4
    hope i helped if not PM me

    yeah most of the time(like on mine) it was just held together with tape
    and no unless your mother board is a 20 pin then there is no reason to take them apart....just leave them together and pop it in
