I guess people are still head hunting these cards, specially since they go for ~$100 more on ebay, used.

Good find, lucky guy. Free game coupon too, though I don't know if people still play that game anymore heh.

My bf played MW1 and whatever one came after that (I just remember it had zombies, and I <3 zombies).  If the coupon is good for the full retail game, then his bday is totally taken care of Tongue

Not really.  We'll mine hard for a month or two on this hardware, then turn around and sell it for 120% the price Smiley

If you look at the thread on the 5870 in hardware you'll see if your going to buy a new rig this is one of the best cards you could get. I still don't believe mining is a waist especially if you take the time to calculate the best machines. I'd agree though that it's not worth it to build something like a 6990 rig.

Yeah good luck with that! I guess you haven't noticed, but the going price on the 5870 is returning to normal. Those cards really are a terrible buy even at that price unless you're short on space.

Absolutely wrong.

If you add up the costs for a server (bare minimum)
cpu-                                        $30
ram-                                       $10
psu-                                      $150
mobo-                                  $140 (if you know cheeper then this with 4 pci express then let me know)
hd-                                         $15
PCIe x16 Extender Cable       $12*4
5870   $190x4
=      $1,153
(440x4)/1153=1.53 megahash per dollar(full server cost)

with 5830
5830   $110x4
=        $833
(330x4)/833=1.58

So as long as you go the absolute cheapest route 5830 rig at 110 is better but not much so. If you add a case or more to the cost at all the 5870 at 190 will probably overcome the 5830.


It almost ties the 110 5830 at megahash per entire server cost at bare minimum. If you add a case or raise the price of the server in any way it will be better then the 5830. At bare minimum it is better then the $130 5830. Also this is better on electricity then the 5830 so they are not a terrible buy.

I wont lie this doesn't seem like the most reliable board. Especially after reading your post that included this:
I bought this board a couple of months ago and it died after a couple of hours. This board is the RMA replacement which I just received.

(Shh! Don't tell Newegg I may have killed it myself.)

These already came and I've got them running.

950/600, 80% fan

415Mh/s, 60C

I haven't tried pushing them any more since I don't want to play the reboot game right now.
