My board is an MSI 6337, a picture is here.  It is a P3 style ATX

Would this PSU work on the board?  It is advertised as 20+4, but there
is a connector in the way on the left side of the socket where the 4
pin is on the connector and the "snap" holder on the connector at the
PSU is off center, it is on pin 6 whereas the typical ATX connector has
the snap between pins 5 and 6.

That PSU will probably be fine because it's combined +3.3V & +5.0V
power rating is 210W -- plenty for a PIII system, if the claim is
truthful.  It's made by HiPro, which produces decent stuff, but
reportedly they're like Channel Well and produce a wide variety of
quality, some not so good (but still better than the very worst, i.e.,
Powmax, Deer).

Have you thought of getting a 300-350W Fortron-Source (Sparkle, Hi-Q,
PowerQ) instead?  All of FSP's products are good, and the quality of
their budget models differ only in the fans (sleeve verses ball

The case for it is compelling: $23 shipped.  The 4 pin connector
apparently slides off and works easily on a 20 pin socket.  If I every
upgrade the board, I'll have a good supply.  I think I am going to give
it a try.
