Default eATX power

hey all
I have an ASUS A8V-E SE motherboard that uses the 24 pin EATX power connecter (i presume its eATX cause thats what the manuel says :P ). ATM im useing just a generic 400w ATX power supply with the 20pin ATX power connecter and the 4 pin P4 connecter plugged in. It boots and runs fine, there are just some stabability (sp?) issues and i was wondering if this has anything to do with the fact im not useing EATX power?

cheers

can you list all your components inside the PC (HD and CDROM included?)

also give us a bit more detail about what kind of problems you are experiencing? Does it occur randomly or do you notice a pattern (opening a certain application, starting a game, etc)

really what i want to know is whether eATX is absolutly nesseary (sp?) for stable operation. All the other components work perfectly fine in another system.
Though if ur interested i have a
ASUS DVD dual layer 16x burner
2x 40Gb Seagate Barracuda HDD
6600GT 128mb PCI-e (by Pixelveiw)
Excel 108mbit Wireless Card
768mb DDR 400
Running Longhorn 5048 (though i have the EXACT same problems useing XP sp2).

oh well, i went and bought a eATX power supply today and now things seam to be running pretty sweet. So let this be a lesson to everyone that those extra 4 pins do matter:P

well, it's not vital to have a 24-pin power connector; but it does help stability issues. However have not experienced any problems running with an older 500W PSU with Asus K8N Opteron 144 OC to 2.7 and 7800GTX
