I have a chance to get a HD 5850 Black Edition for $75. Is this a good thing?

Thanks!

Hi! I think that it might be becoming obsolete when the new Butterflylabs ASICs come out. I think they might raise the difficulty up by a lot. so you should just get a BFL Jalepeno from butterfly labs for 150 USD it has I think 3.5 Gigahash of processing power.

Sorry if my English is bad lol

Yes,  If you already have the other necessary hardware. There is a good chance it would pay for itself before the difficulty skyrockets.

Just be sure they aren't scammers, ask for pictures of the cards with a paper with their name on it and date.  You could take it a step further and search their user name on the forums and ebay.  This is all if you are paying bitcoins for them, if you are doing paypal, you don't have as much to worry about.

That sounds like a good deal. Most are going for 100-150 on ebay.

I'm getting a 5870 for 125 tomorrow, I recommend just saving that 75 and buying a BFL Jalapeno though.

Hell yeah, a 5850 for $75 will be nice to use for a couple months till difficulty goes up and then u can sell it easily on Craigslist or Ebay and invest in some new tech!

Goodluck
