So I had a cheap Senty 500watt powering my two overclocked 5830s. It died after an hour or so. So I am in the market for a new Power supply that will handle two 5830s. I figure each one take about 200 watts, plus another 80-100watts for the CPU, RAM, and Motherboard. Thought a single +12V rail 600watt should do the trick. I was looking at this one for $60 on Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182200

It has one 6pin, and one 6+2pin. That will be enough for one of my 5830s, so can I use my Molex/6pin converter cables that came with my other 5830 to power it? Or would I end up blowing something out again? Also is Rosewill any good? (they are owned by newegg)

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

Forgot to add:
I plan on ordering within the next hour before I head off to work so it would ship out Monday morning. I guess if I get no replies in time, I'll order when I get home tonight.

Unfortunately, I am not into GPU enough to know how much your cards are pulling.

Are you only using that 500w for the 2 cards? If so, how much is each card pulling?

Was using it, but it died. I assume the card's pull around 170-180watts. 200 max. That's what others seem to be using on the mining comparison list for a 5830: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison#AMD_.28ATI.29

Seems like it was just a bad power supply.
Then again, I'm not that familiar with them.
