Alright, so basically this card says it needs a 2x 75W pci express connector, but does that mean that my coolmax 600W im going to get will be able to run it if it just says that it has 1 pci express connector?

That GPU only have 1 PCI-e connector, but the 5830 should come with a molex connector.

Regardless of this however, I would look into getting a new PSU as your next upgrade.

Yes it should come with a molex to six pin adapter. It will work, but with the quality of that PSU I would get a new one.

That fan has nothing to do with the quality of the PSU, especially the size, you have no idea how reliable that fan is anyway. IF you haven't already bought the Coolmax PLEASE get something better, or you may regret it.

Well what I meant was that I want a psu with a big fan so it wont have to spin as fast to cool my pc. What, may I ask, is wrong with the coolmax, and no, I haven't bought It yet.

There's what you get when you only look at output ratings and fan size.

You have to understand that you get what you pay for, and name brands like Antec, Corsair, XFX, OCZ, and Seasonic all make flat out better units. The components put into them are just better. Period.
When you buy a cheap PSU, it doesn't matter how big the fan is, they probably just put the cheapest parts onto the board that they could that, which will blow up in a year of light use, maybe sooner. If you want it to anihilate the rest of your setup, go ahead - build yourself a new PC every year because of a cheap PSU. If you were smart, though, you'd get a good, reliable unit that will probably end up lasting ten times longer than the rest of your setup with no problems at all.

Yup, it is that simple. In the end , it is your decision and money. Good luck.

Damn, lesson learned. Any suggestions for a good cpu w/a big fan that wont break the bank (as much)
