All of them..
All the connectors required in a PSU to power up any chip, for any motherboard will be in every ATX power supply, or any power supply for that matter. There is no PSU brand or model built solely for Intel, and if there is.. it must be some sort of horrible marketing BS similar to Apple.

Just be sure to get one with the pcie x connectors for the video card.
What video card are you planning to purchase?
and have you calculated the estimated amount of wattage your system will need to set up a guideline of how much of a powerful PSU you will need?

Here are a few links:

Please make sure the PSU you buy is 80+ certified, and that you buy one that is big enough (check with this power calculator). Others tend to be cheaper, but more prone to be pieces of trash that destroy your hardware.

I'm buying an HD 5670 for my old system and found this PSU:

Diablotek DA Series PSDA250 250W ATX Power Supply
  • Fans: 1 x 80mm fan
  • Main Connector: 20+4Pin
  • +12V Rails: Single
  • SATA Power Connector: 3
  • Model #: PSDA250
  • Item #: N82E16817822006
Is this good enough to run an HD 5570?

What is your system? It may be possible your motherboard or case requires a proprietary PSU, or maybe a different size other than ATX.

Sapphire (www.sapphiretech.com) recommends 400W minimum for either a 5570 or 5670. I'm not sure I believe that: both cards get all their power through the PCI-E X16 slot, which means 75W max. Your Pentium E2200 is rated at 65W. Best to play safe, though.

While you're at Newegg, read the reviews. The best products will have negative reviews, but this one has 13 out of 54 as one stars. That's enough for me to say: stay away.

Diablotek PSU are not very good at all and you should avoid them. A good 400W supply will do. Don't go too cheap here. Here are some good ones:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182066 $60

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817207018 $63

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139026 $40

I would go for the latter

use this calculator to find out. And as I said in the post above yours, if it isn't 80+ certified it is likely rubbish.

Yes, good PSUs tend to cost around double of the cheap rubbish, but since you aren't building an office machine, you need one that is actually designed to provide its rated power, cheapo ones tend to state their "peak" power output when their actual 24/7 output sucks.

I'm just playing source engine games like CS Source, Half life 2, and TF2 and I'm worried if I play GTA IV the PSU would blow.

you can use the calculator I posted above, you say your PC's specs and it calculates what power your system needs when at full load.
