just editing this post that was already here (it used to be about 7770 for $70, hence the reply below)

MIRs suck.

but if you actually used it and sold those game coupons on ebay, I guess it'd be under $150.

buy this if you want a decent card for gaming (2GB RAM), not to put together some new mining machine.  

link fixed to not take you to page 2 comments, hah.

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

Good for weak PSUs.

Bad for density and occupies a valuable slot for a measly 200MH/s.

Yeah, that was what I told someone else.  It's not worth it simply because of the PCI-E slots being used..

But I suppose if you have a few extra PCI-e slots and want a decent gaming card, etc..

(ed: oh, and something that should get a much higher % back if one were to sell it used vs something like a 5830 or 5870, when ASICs finally push GPU's out)

2GB RAM.  Supposedly you can sell the game coupons for at least $30.  

ed: oh, cool..  the rebate isn't one of those ghetto prepaid debit cards or anything like that... just like a $20 gift card at newegg

i pulled the trigger & actually bought one..   after looking at the games a bit closer, i think those could sell for like $40-$50

ed:  nm, the rebate is a prepaid american express reward card.  lol.  oh well, w/e
