I recently bought this 5970 graphics card with the intention of mining bitcoins, but I have wasted so much time on trying to get ubuntu to work that I have decided to sell the card.
I got the card working in windows xp, but apparently you can't use both cores because of some windows + crossfire thing, so I gave up. Plus all those miners were very buggy and wouldn't run reliably. So I knew I'd be in for more work than it's worth.
Perhaps someone with more expertise and more free time than me can make use of this card.
- I never overclocked the card. Just ran it on stock settings.
- I bought the card from a guy who just used it for gaming before he upgraded to some 6xxx crossfire system.
- No issues with the card. You can expect over 550MH/s from this card - providing you have the skills to set it up
My asking price is US$499 plus postage, from Australia.
Send me an email: rhettius at gmail.com if you're interested.
Thanks, gl everyone.
