First, Circuit City wants your money. They will lie to you, so an adapeter won't do dameafe.

The adapter works fine. Like I said, I had the same problem, and I used that Aspire adapter that I linked. No problems whatsoever.

This person knows what they're talking about.
My friend went to Best Buy and Circuit City, and they told him it would cost about $200 to fix his computer, and I took a look at it, and the only things wrong were that his EIDE cord for his CD drive was unplugged, and he had to reinstall windows because he had installed a new processor.

Don't trust big companies, I have used one of these adapters for years, and it never gave me any trouble.

first off, adapters are no good. Its just like a bottleneck. It will work with just a 20pin connector, but you might run into stability problems at high clocks. If you are really THAT paranoid about it, i would say for a OCZ Powerstream 520.

Thanks for reporting this, can't see any harm in the link in this case, you're only referring to a supplier, OK?

I don't understand why you respond to reports in the thread. It's really confusing if someone doesn't know what you're talking about. Besides, what's the point? It's like hijacking. If it really is necessary, can't you just PM the reporter?

For your information, the whole idea is to respond to reported posts, I don't understand you, yet again. You yourself report posts, so what do you expect us mods to do?, I am also a mod at Computer Vitals, nobody there asks this, & it's only your opinion that nobody knows what I'm talking about, & I do contact members by PM, if Ithink that the thing I need to tell them, is too sensitive to put on open forum.

Are other members confused by the Reported Post procedure?, let me know please.

A new PSU is better than a converter indeed. Just make sure that you have what you want lol

Hello again friend, by this, are you saying that I am stating the obvious?, some members don't seem to understand why reported posts are essential, especially the member I replied to on this subject.
