What's controversial is whether or not $110 is a "lowball offer" for someone selling a Sapphire 5830 for $160.
The card is worth $110 new, so it's not like he's looking to take advantage of the seller, or get a "steal of a deal".
On the other hand, the card isn't available now. So maybe it's worth more like $120 or $130 on the market.

That one is open for debate, I suppose.

But usually lowball offers are like porn. You recognize it when you see it.

I still don't understand why people get insulted at low offers.  If you don't like the offer, just decline.  Simple as that.  No need to get riled up about it - that'll just make you die sooner.   Cheesy

Regardless, I'll step out of this thread, since I'm not liable to convince anyone.

People get insulted because to them, a low-ball offer is like being told "Your shit ain't worth shit!".

But I agree there's not need to take it personally, just decline.

And by the way...

...some people 'recognize' porn when there is none, and visa versa.

I agree. I am willing to pay a little extra If using bitcoins just because well it saves me having to get the coins converted.

But with used cards It all depends because if your buying it off here so the chances are the cards have been overclocked and had more volts put though them than someone on death row. So I take that into consideration.

the buyer has the right to walk away and the seller has the right to say no.
