Hi guys,

I'm hopefully going abroad in a few weeks, and I'm expecting to stay there for a few months at least.

I bought these cards to build a miner, but didn't get round to it, and I'll have no use for them now.

I'm in London, UK. Collection welcome.

It is two XFX 5870 cards, brand new and unopened.

Any offers for one or for both?

Just reply here, or PM me.

Thanks.

40 BTC for both, plus shipping. I might be able to collect them locally hence the shipping on the side.

I'm not too keen on accepting BTC due to the volatility of the prices. Sorry...
Could you pay cash/bank transfer?

That kind of lowers my perceived value of the cards. Sure, they are brand new, but for the beating they'll be taking I can get used ones on a budget (if not in a hurry, which I'm not).

Still, I'll be interested in them if the price is right, and I can do cash (maybe, I'm not in the UK but I do go there often) or bank transfer if you send first (assuming you trust me).

20 btc per 5870 is already an insanely good deal for new. If you ask for less because he wants cash your ripping him off.

20 BTC per card is a good price, if you do take that offer. but since you don't really take BTC, do you take paypal or dwolla? and do you ship to the US?

btw, this is in the wrong section. it's suppose to be posted in the "goods" section under marketplace

Sorry for posting in the wrong section.

Here is a pic.

They are unopened and still have the undamaged plastic sticky pads on the flaps.

I could sell these on eBay, but I'd rather that they go to miners and are not wasted on games.

I do take paypal I guess, and I can ship too, although it might be expensive.

Any better offers?

Thanks guys.

Don't be jealous just because I beat you to it Smiley

Seriously, though, it is a rip off, a steal if you will, but since I'm killing my cards in the mining process (or at the very least seriously reducing their life span) I don't care for paying the same I'd pay on retail, so my base price is what I get on ebay for used cards. It is what it is, I'd be a fool not to propose this, you are more than welcome to outbid me, it is his prerogative to accept or not, just don't start calling me names Wink

Keeping to the bitcoin theme, I'll also pay mtgox$500 for the both shipped. You'll have to work out getting the money from mtgox, but there are several options, the best of them imho is selling on #bitcoin-otc.

Hi

Where are you based, so I can work out how much shipping will cost?

Thanks.

I've been talking to nelisky through PM and I might just sell it to him.

But can anyone else offer anything more than $500 for these two cards? If you can, let me know asap!

Well, you stopped replying to my PMs, so I assume you are no longer interested?
