Confused on an example provided_sino vs sino que

In this example, "El dinero no es todo pero ayuda muchísimo" , I want to use  "sino que" since the rule states that "If we need a different conjugated verb in the second clause after sino, then we need to add "que" after sino."

I am a bit confused.

Hola Kaly

The need to use "sino que" with a whole clause is as opposed to "sino" with no "que". But "pero" can also be used with a conjugated verb after. 

Saludos
