So yeah, i've looked around a bit but havn't had any luck.
I have an old computer sitting at home mining at like 5mh/s (shutup
) and recently ordered 2 5830's. I decided I'd stick them in that computer.
Now with software im the master, hardware im pretty crap. I know that cards don't need alot of bandwidth to mine (x1), and the pci slot that the current cpu is plugged into says
PCI v2_E2, so im not sure whether that will work or not? (I think the current ati card is a 4500 series). Also, the computer only has a 400w psu, that will allow me to run 1 gpu yeah (not 2?)? I've looked around a bit and they seem to use ~250w when at full capacity.
Also I don't know what model the MB is, looked and look, short from pulling it out of the case I can't tell (it's from medion though ><)
So question, will the 5830 work in the same slot as the 4500 is in (providing it fits in the case)?
