I'm still pretty new to bitcoin mining and I was wondering if A 6850 for 99.99 is a good deal? http://3btech.net/msirahd1gbdi.html They have them on sale right now for 99.99 with coupon code 6850msi4539. Is there a better deal out there right now or should I pull the trigger on some of these?

An initial $0.50 per kh/s is a pretty good deal, but you'll lose in electricity costs compared to newer, more efficient cards. I would also be wary on how that little heatsink is going to fare at mining.

My name was simply a play on "Blue Engineer" from Team Fortress. I am not affiliated with Microsoft or the Azure project.

Seems pretty good since the cost on newegg is $190. Check other places online and see how it compares and then check to see if and when you will get your money back.
