    I have a 1010 watt PSU from OCz rated with 4 12v rails @ 20a each, will that be enough to run a GTX 580?

    Thanks!

    I don't see why not...

    Also, update your profile since well, it's obviously outdated if you're trying to run a GTX580.

    That depends. Are you planning to install 10 DVD drives and 20 HDD's, a sound card, 4 Raid Cards, and one of those light up USB Christmas Trees?

    2xGTX580 i7 975 @ 3.8ghz 6gb dominator 1xHDD 2xmonitors = 819W in furmark without the power limit.

    A 1010w psu without 8 pin? Most be a old one. Cut the 6 pin adapter one so it can be a 2 pin, then join it with a 6 pin and you will have a 6 pin and a 8 pin. I have done this before folks.

    if it's a Y connector that converts two 6-pin PCIe into an 8-pin then yeah use that...

    the converter you're talking about is a dual 6 pin to 8pin (75w+75w =150w).

    he only has two 6pins. so he'd still need a molex adapter.

    my gtx580 came with a dual 6 pin to 8 pin adapter. what you get with your bundle is dependent on which brand it is.
