I am building up another mining rig, I already have one 5970 in an ATX case mining away,  but will be building a wooden frame with pci-e risers so that I can add more cards

So, I'm looking to buy another 2 5970s, maybe not both straight away, just 1 to start with, but also a 1200w PSU or a PSU of around 850w seeing as I'm already using a 750w so I'll just chain 2 together.

I only have eBay feedback here - http://feedback.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=olly_k&ftab=AllFeedback

Would prefer to buy in the UK but wouldn't mind from elsewhere if the shipping is right.

Looking to pay around £300 per card.

I also have a 6950 that I got as as an RMA replacement for a 5870 that went bad, I could trade that too as it doesn't play very nice with my 5 series GPUs

Thanks !

I dont have any parts to offer you but, just an FYI.

Unless you are running more than the 2 5970s on the one board, 750w of power is enough to get the job done. Of coarse that is dependant on how the +12v rail(s) are configured, but O.C.ed to 800-820/150-300 and a highpowered CPU you'll be around 600w TPD at the wall.

Thanks, I'm currently running 5 5870s off a Fractal 1kw PSU with no issues so a 750w should handle 2 5970s. Just wanted to get the feelers out for a more powerful one for when other cards arrive Smiley
