Default Does my computer really need this?...

I've ordered a dell to atx converter to use a replacement power supply for my dell computer. I'm starting to wonder whether or not my computer will even need it...http://www.endpcnoise.com/cgi-bin/e/dellconverter.html

"Notes: If you are unsure if your Dell requires one of our Dell Power Supply Adapters, please take a close look at the Dell motherboard pictured at the top of this page and see if your motherboard has the extra connector pictured on the left."

Now scroll down and look at the picture of the motherboard in this link...I don't think it has that extra connector pictured on the left...

There isn't another power connection shown, but you should still take a look inside to see if there is an extra connection similar to the one in the picture on the adapter page.
