Folks-

I have found, and seen with my eyes, 5-6 5830 g cards at a local store. If i purchased them all I am just trying to gauge interest in attempts to possibly re-sell, help out beginner miners, and Since this is the USA (where I am) make a little $$$$.

any interest PM or post.


I dont like the guy. How many reasons do I have? alot.
How many reasons do I need? none.

Would possibly be interested, but the resale price would have to be better than $130/unit for sapphires or gigabytes.

Yeah I am trying to decide if it is worth it.

First of all Mail in rebates are involved.  Freaking gross.

199 cost

50 dollar mail in rebate.

~150

I know its a raw deal for that card, but without chasing rainbows too much seems like a still reasonable price.

and they get about 300M/h

MIR per household: unlimited

probably around 175?

What do you two think un reasonable?

let me know.

my guess too, i cleaned out the Tustin one 3 days ago of 4 units,  just needed 4 addresses to mail them too is actually the specifics. Me house, my office, my partner house, his parents house = 4. see what you can work out yourself.

If I make you smile you can hook me up a teeny bit:  13hKeyHMv5YMWxvwj9M1fTntGJiogdhbeo

Also here's a protip: microcenter will do pricematching with newegg without manager approval, and any site with manager approval. Also I've talked to around three different employees at my local microcenter who are all miners using employee discounts to get hardware cheap.

Newegg is currently out of stock of this card, but had it for $160. I plan to head in tomorrow and show them google's cache of newegg's page for this card and see if they'll match.

I think the biggest attraction to the 5830 was the $109.99 newegg price.  Amazing compared to nearly $200 for cards like 6870's with equal or lesser hashing power.

2MH/$ is still pretty decent.  Hard to find much that beats that outright
