Why bother???  a 5830 is much better
Personally I wouldn't, but with the 5k series getting harder to find I figured I'd pass on the deal info if someone was strategically positioned to pull the trigger on one.


6870 is $154 after rebate. Not quite a 5830 yet but it's pretty nice.

rebate is one per household most likely.

dont forget the $7.56 Shipping

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

Good point.

But you could get an 6870 XFX, Sapphire, Powercolor, Biostar and get all 4 cards for $154-$159 after rebate. It's 4 rebates which is a pain in the ass but that's probably the best value in the 6xxx series.

For 50 dollars less you can pick up at 5770 and those easily get 200mhs. It seems 2mhs/1$ is a sweetspot.
I wouldn't call 2 megahash per dollar the sweetspot. The 5830 @ 130 gives you 2.4 if not 2.5 and the sapphire 5850 has been said to be able to do 400 easily with no over volt that's 2.76 megahash per dollar. The super good deal on the 5870 a week or two ago ($189) can easily give you 2.3. The 5770 can be a good deal but not at 100 if you can get one at 70 or 80 maybe. That's 2.86 but keep in mind all the parts in your server dilute the megahash per dollar value. The only way I think a 5770 build could work is if you could manage to squeeze 8 of them on a mobo but I havent done enough research on that to be positive.
this is not true, non of my 5850 has been able to do 400mh/s on stock voltage overclocking. "easily" means most of them should be able to hit this speed, which is not true at all. this is only a few lucky good ones

I don't think every 5850 can reach this but I've heard multiple times on this forum that the sapphire 5850 can easily reach this. It just depends on the brand.
