Hey Folks,

i have a spare PC standing around with an older Nvidia GPU - i already sold that card on ebay now and am looking for an alternative from AMD.

Problem is that there`s only a 350W low end PSU inside.

Is there something better available then a HD5770 (~85W) for this box?

Bye,
dsky

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

Depends on the quality of the unit (brand & model # would be nice) before we can make a suggestion.

I ran a pair of 5870's and an OCed quad core off of a high quality 430w unit for several days of looping Far Cry 2 benchmark at max settings for a proof of concept review.

FSP Group FSP350 PSU -> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817104051

2x 5870 and a Quadcore on 430W is crazy... The 5870 can take up to 188W...

Also the 5870 isn`t available in my Region. Will check eBay.
Thanks!

FSP and Seasonic (and others made by them) are pretty much the best low power units so you did good.

You'd be fine with a 5770 or 5830.  A 6790 does about the same hash rate as a 5770 and are occasionally on sale for less than 5770s.  But a $109 5830 from Newegg (in and out of stock all the time) is the best bang for your buck.
