    I got a 1010watt PSU from OCz with 4 12v rails @ 20a each, is that good enough?

    Thanks

    hmm, maybe.

    two of the 12v rails are normally assigned to your cpu/mobo and other components.

    each of the two remaining rails alone do not supply enough power for a gtx580. but if you use a 6pin from one rail and an 8pin from another rail, it will run fine.

    molex adapters also suck. theyre generally not as stable as a proper 6pin cable.

    if you really want a gtx580 running in your pc, you'd need to use a dual molex to 6pin adapter, and a dual 6pin to 8pin adapter.

    personally, i'd say its better to get a psu that already has the 8pin cables.

    Personally, if I owned that psu I would replace it with one that had proper 8\6 pci-e connections, especially for a 580. Looking at the connections, it was never meant support high end video cards. Just to connect both the 8 and 6 pin you have to cobble together two adaptors. I also prefer single rail, non-modular psu’s...old school.

    Just curious, is the 580 for a new system build, or are you planning on putting it in your sig rig?
