Computer hardware used to depreciate just fine on it's own, but now with hardware being purchased specifically for bitcoin mining, you can actually watch it depreciate on a weekly basis!  Grin

I dont see the draw for these...  2 5870's will give you the same/similar Mh for about 450 bucks

I'm thinking 6870's are the best buy at the moment. You can score them for $189 on sale and get ~300 Mhash/sec.

I have a feeling that if i purchases 6990s instead of other cards.. i would mine with them for a while and
just when I wanted to sell them 7xxx would come out and the high end gamers would have no interest in
them especially if they blow them out of the water for a certain price point.

the cost per mh/s just does not make sense to me. but perhaps a spread sheet analysis now days might show
a different trend.

btw.. out of stock. lol.

Dual gpu on a single PCB cards do not have a good resale value. MOST gamers just get 2 or 3 cards. I had to sell my 5970 for just $300  before the bitcoin craze took off.

5830s retail for $109 (when they are in stock, which, they aren't right now) and can get easily get 280+ MH/s.  I'm actually selling a pair of brand new 5830s right now (never used, as I don't mine):

Can someone explain to my why 6990's... from what I've read you can get about 700 mHash out of them which is no doubt a good rate but that's still $1.06 mHash, seems like there are cheaper options?

the idea is that you can fit more GPUs into 1 rig.  1 card = 2 GPUs as opposed to 1 card=1GPU.

That only makes sense if space is a premium cost. Otherwise, you could build a cheap mining hull for like $300 to slap another 3x video cards into.

and that is exactly what people figured out.. and why 5830s were so darn popular. cheaper to stick in
two 5830s on a cheap machine then to buy a MB/PSU/etc that can support more cards/power.

6990s are not worth it. Period.

They are noisy too -- go ahead and google it. I was tempted to buy one used for $600 from someone locally, then I found out they A) run hot and B) run loud.

Oh, and they have a lousy $/MH.

Unless there is a motherboard/PSU drought where you live, skip the 6990.

check this out...  newegg removed the products from my cart after not visiting the cart for half hour or so

MSI R6990-4PD4GD5 has been removed from shopping cart due to quantity limitation/insufficient stock. Some combo items might be affected by this.

That's normal. Unless you hit "place order", the items aren't reserved for you.

Unfortunately, a virtual shopping cart does not equal a real shopping cart.  Angry
