Well, just got a deal on a used HIS HD6990 @ USD480

I am from Malaysia by the way so the 58xx series of cards are hard to come by. The card is about 6 - 8 months old.

Would this be a good buy? I am planning to run it under linux coin with a USB pendrive, however I am not sure of what miner to use. Also the options to set on the miner for the best optimization. What would you guys suggest?

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

Yes.

Make sure you tell him to put for customs as "gift" and broken parts with $50 value...

Its being shipped locally Smiley

The seller is from my country as well. And over here, there is no tax for importing electronic / computer related parts / items.

Thank you though. I shall be pulling the trigger on this one.
