I just bought out the last 8 5830s from Newegg, I'm sure other vendors will follow. From what I can gather, nothing competes with it's price/Mhash on the market. Thoughts?

Will this play a significant role in reducing the expansion of the network?

LOL, I wonder if the gfx card vendors realise for why their cards are being sold so quickly, and in lots of more than 2 ?

Good thing I made my purchase yesterday... I was worried about waiting, and apparently rightly so.

Maybe temporarily.

From what I understand those particular 5830's were only recently manufactured by Sapphire as some kind of value series... since they all sold I am betting they will be making more despite them being an old model.

Even if not.. the 7000 series is not far off.. which should push the 6000's down in price.

This is like the 5th thread about this this morning. And no the network doesn't rely on 5830s to grow. There are roughly 16-20 million 58xx series cards in circulation. Neweggs stock of like 200 5830s isn't really the make or break for bitcoin.

TigerDirect and Amazon have 5830s for $130, the XFX not Sapphire. From my research the difference isn't significant. I grabbed another 16 from Amazon before they sell out too :p

TigerDirect has them for $99.99 with the mail in rebate (sucks I know, but it's $60 you'll get back later, right?)

Just grabbed 2, lots in stock apparently according to TD Customer Service.

I wonder the same thing myself -- why don't they hire extra shifts and crank out more of those bad babys?

That's good to know. When I put them in my cart it made it look like you could only use the rebate once.

I suppose you could get around that pretty easily

this all kind of makes me giggle.  I know when bionic put out gpu stuff for crunching numbers there was a slight increase in card sales.... But I can't imagine there has ever been a increase in sales like this.   its completely insane how many vid cards have been purchased just because of bitcoins in the past few weeks...  should of got stock in these manufacturers

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison The 5830 is the best bang for your buck RIGHT NOW. I don't know what you paid for your 5870 but it's much better for mining than a 5830 ignoring cost

A simple estimate of the bitcoin community puts miners in the roughly 10-20,000 range. New card sales are likely less but even assuming an optimistic estimate, we'll say 20,000.

In the first 9 months after the 5xxx series was released, AMD sold 16million 5xxx chips. 20,000 / 16million = .1% Bitcoin is a drop in the bucket at the moment. I'm glad people are being optimistic about bitcoin, that's what it needs, but really let's keep things in perspective.

Ooh yeah for sure overall its nothing.  But what I meant was just a average shopping time to see a huge spike in sales out of the blue.

edit: smiley after stock comment cuz was being funny.
