This might be a very stupid question, but here goes...


I have never seen the inside of a P4 computer, so this is why I ask..



I am planning on building a cheap htpc (settling for now..) with a Celeron 1 Ghz mainboard. I found a nice black desktop case at digital connection. However, they say it has a P4 compatible power supply. Does this mean that it can ONLY work with P4 mainboards, or does it mean you can use P3/Celeron/P4 mainboards?? I didn't even know they had changed any connectors etc.??

If it has a P4 supply then it can do normal ATX just fine also. The P4 'requires' additional power to be fed from a second connector coming out of the power supply. In a 'nut shell' if it's P4 compatible, it's backward compatible to ATX as well.
