If the motherboard has 2 x16 PCI-e slots, sure. Even 2 x8 will work.

But you will probably need a large PSU, pending of what cards want. I don't know how many PCI-e plugs the 5830 has, but if it has 2, then a PSU upgrade will be needed.

the PSU will handle it. under load, total system power did not break 450w in this stress test. in gaming, power consumption will be slightly less.
