Well, I just took a gander at eBay, and let me tell you, that's even worse!

As P.T. Barnum said, "There's a sucker born every minute."

I'd like to know what these cards are supposed to do besides Bitcoin mining, because I have several! Apparently I don't realize what all they can do for you.

Because for Bitcoin mining (in about 6 hours, after the difficulty reset) they will make you about 0.257 BTC a day, or $4.01 (when BTC is 15.60) or $3.54 after electricity is taken out.

$200 for a card? $350 for a card?  Come on, you gotta be joking me!  It's a 5830, not a 5870!

Hmm, I think I should go sell some of my 5830s that I haven't opened yet! Then, get a 6870 with the profits!

the average price of a 5830 selling on ebay is below 160 based on a quick glance at completed listings.
just because a few people pay more does not mean much. it has always been like that on ebay for similar items.
