1  Other / Beginners & Help / Sapphire 5830 Xtreme for sale for BTC on: June 12, 2011, 05:07:07 AM
Well I guess I have to post this here since I can't post in the proper section......(maybe it will get moved there).

I'm looking to sell the extra Sapphire 5830 I ordered and can't use at the moment. It will be shipped from Canada which will be included in the price.

Looking at an $11 exchange rate at mtgox and dropping I'll start at 18 BTC obo. I'll leave this post open for 24 hours and see where we sit.

Hey all,

Anyone ever used ? I deposited a few btc there yesterday and they have yet to show up. Just curious if anyone has any experience with this site in particular.

Hey all,

I'm running a media/file server on my old Dell E521 and am curious about adding mining power to it since its on running 24 hrs/day as is. I'm seeing a couple limitations right away and had some questions.

There are 2 PCI-e slots (a x16 and a x1 - irrelevent, I'm pretty sure for strictly mining) and I was thinking about grabbing a couple cheap 5830's. The old Dell has a stock 300W PSU and is in a fairly compact case.

I guess the questions I have are:

1) What are the lengths of a 5830 and if they are too long for a standard case are PCI-e extenders a solution?
2) How big of a PSU am I going to need to upgrade too?
3) Do you think this will have any effect on streaming media from the server?

Any input is appreciated.
