There have been better cards then this sit and be patient. There's a reason its been in stock for several days.

5870s are extremely difficult to come across and 5830s are quite literally the best option at the moment amongst available cards.

Thank you, this was exactly the point I was trying to make.

Also, owing to the versatility of the CrossfireX platform, anyone who gets a 5830 and then later comes across a 5870 at a reasonable price can run both cards in Crossfire. However, I can't say that I'm an expert on this subject. Does running these cards in Crossfire offer any advantage to simply plugging both cards into your motherboard?

If you should choose to pity me -14GLjCUE7ohxRLvwZD2sfjKjf22Lt3UHip

No in fact it can cause some issues to mine while crossfired.

I just got mine in the mail.  Ordered 3, but only one setup so far.  Getting about 310 mhash/s out of it, so seems to be a pretty good deal.

Isnt it a false economy buying hardware these days for mining?

You could always try CPU mining...
