Hi,
I have not used one of these boards before, and it has the normal ATX power connector and a 4 Pin 12v power connector.
Can anybody tell me if this should be connected I am running an Athlon XP2800+ on the board
Thanks

Yes it should be connected. A compaible power supply would come complete with the correct plug.

No problem, if you need any advice on power supplies for this board I'd be happy to help.

I think my power supply is alright but, I may come back to you on that.
Thanks again for the help

Heres some good info that might help click here

I THINK THE 4 PIN CONNECTOR YOURE TALKING ABOUT IS ONLY USED ON PENTIUM 4 MOTHERBOARDS

Your right in the sense that it is a P4 connector but board manufacturers for AMD chips have adopted it now to reduce the load on the main ATX connector and to ensure that the chip get's all the power it needs.

not seen one on any of the boards i've worked on , but hey i may not have seen any of the brand new boards yet

900,
I have this board with the 2800 too, it is possible to run your system without this connection, but both M.S.I. and AMD both recommend that it is used.

sorry, i missed the end part, it is advised to be used so that the nforce chip on board recieves a full power source.
