If you live in reasonably large place, you can buy wiring adapters locally that will adapt your power supply's connectors to whatever type of connector you need.

New power supplies have all the necessary connectors. If the info about which ones it has is not in it's ad, look up the model on the manufacturer's web site.

Don't buy an el-cheapo (in quality) PS.

Looks like the board has one of those 6-pin 3.3v connectors. You may be able to run it without having to plug anything into the aux 3.3v connector. I have a few Slot 1 boards with the aux 3.3v connectors; they power up and POST fine using only the main 20-pin ATX.

None of mine are dual processor boards, however.

I have several PSs that have the connector for that, so probably other PSs do too.

" the bios is not the award it's the phoenix bios."

Phoenix merged with Award many years ago.

Asus itself doesn't use Phoenix bios versions - they use either Award or AMI bios versions. If the bios is a brand name system's bios version, it may be a Phoenix version.

"Is this a genuine board or one manufactured for an OEM like HP/Compaq,.."

It's a retail model, not an OEM only model, but it could have a brand name system bios version.

i don't see any oem brand on it no compaq or hp logos so it has to be genuine, but from looking at the bios chip it says phoenix bios D686 BIOS 024636041 and
another sticker with CV4D6 1010 NKH3 maybe asus made a mistake and it is the
award bios i haven't powered it up yet.

Since Phoenix merged with Award many years ago, in late 90's I believe, for any mboard newer than that, the Phoenix labelling may be used on a bios chip that has an Award bios version on it, if it has an Asus supplied bios version .
Compaq and HP brand name system bios versions are often Phoenix bios versions.

If it was supplied to a brand name system builder, it originally had a brand name system bios version, and there would probably be one or more stuck on labels on the mboard (not something printed on the surface of the mboard), one of which has bar codes and the brand name's part number for the mboard on it. Mboards used in HP and Compaq systems also often have their own unique name for the mboard printed on that label, and one label for the mboard part number, another label with the part number for the mboard with the specific cpu installed.
The label may be ontop of the parallel port.
