HP Compaq 8100 Elite PSU question

HP Compaq 8100 Elite PSU question


I have a HP Compaq 8100 Elite convertable mini tower, i upgraded the video card but didnt realise i also needed to upgrade the PSU as its only a 320w, looks like i need a 600w to handle everything.

I cant seem though to find a psu that has the correct connections for the motherboard, the only ones i can see have the 24 pin, where as mine needs a 6 pin and then a 4 pin for the power.

Has anyone run into this before and managed to find the right PSU?

Dont really want to have to purchase a new pc just for graphics card to work...
