Windows 7: PSU/Motherboard Compatiable Question

PSU/Motherboard Compatiable Question

Hey Guys,

This is going to sound stupid but I wanted to clarify with the experts before assuming anything.

I am looking to upgrade my MB but am no longer able to get the ones that I wanted but can get much better boards if I order from the US.

My question is, if I buy a board from overseas (eg ga-990fx-ud7) will I have any issues using the current psu that I have?

Nope, the only difference is in the wall connector. The ATX standard for board applies world-wide.

The problem would be with any warranty claims, the local vendors probably wouldn't take care of it.

Yep, as Britton said - no dramas apart from any potential RMA issues.
