I have a sliverstone 1500 watt PSU
and intend to install two 5870x2s cards in cross fire. I know this PSU is lager but my question is the graphics card power supply leads on this power supply has two plug one 6 pin and one 8/6 pin plugs can I just use one lead for one graphics card.
the output is 30 amps per lead

Yes, I misread. Actually so did you. He has two 6 pin connectors and one 8/6 pin. He will need one more 6-pin connector.
