The pin 20 or 24-pin goes in the just as big slot, it should be to the south-east of the CPU icon_razz.gif

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

take the huge port from the power supply, either 20 Pin, or a 20 + 4 pin ATX and plug it into the huge white thing in the middle of your motherboard

Edit : Weiman beat me =( but yea what he said

The 4 part is more to the top next to the CPU right? You should put a different connector there.

First: RTFM
Second: If you have questions RTFM again
Third: RTFM once more

If you did infact RTFM you would already know the answer to all the questions you have asked.
The answer to your question is that the 20+4 pin ATX connector goes into the 24pin slot you have there. Another connector called the P4 connector, which is square and consists of 2 yellow and 2 black wires goes into the P4 connector on your mobo. THe P4 connector is separate from the ATX conntector.
The other thing to note is that it's very difficult to plug in a PSU the wrong way, and if you experiment a little no damage will be done unless you turn the computer on with something hooked up incorrectly.

Have you tried turning it off and on again?
