Hey guys,

I'm running a single 5870 on a micro-ATX motherboard, this one to be specific : G31M-ES2L.

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3485#ov

It has :

    1 x PCI Express x16 slot
    1 x PCI Express x1 slot
    2 x PCI slots

If I get a x1 PCI Express Riser Card and upgrade my PSU from a 550w to 1000w, can I run 2x5870? The OS it's running on is WinXP 32bit.

Thanks for your help!

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

yes, but you need something to hold the card up.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
