Hello

I am considering selling off a large portion of my GPU mining farm.

which includes 15 x AMD Radeon HD 5870 - mixed brands , about half of them are the 2gb eyefinity six edition models which gives them a much higher resell value - the cards have been babied for the most part - fans stay at 50%

Includes 3 x MSI 890FXA-GD70 Motherboards in VGC (sempron 2.7 ghz cpu + 2gb + sata hard drives + pcie cables included, )
2 X Corsair HX1000watt 80 plus PSU
1 X Corsair AX1200watt 80 plus PSU

I have them setup in a custom open air setup that I developed.

I am not 100% sure I even want to sell right now but I would to the right person for the right price and Basically right now I am gauging interest, and taking offers (Serious only please) to see if anyone is interested in buying the whole thing in one shot, because I am not sure if I want the headache of parting it all out.

local pickup in Upstate ny is offered and encouraged if its close enough to you, of course I can ship these anywhere in the world.
you can buy in confidence from me as I have conducted thousands in recent positive transactions.
(see http://www.coinconnect.org/pages/view/14204/bitcointalkorg-marketplace-trading-history-for-cablepair)

please PM, email , or call / text 315 514 0269 if interested (nothing after 9PM EST please)



thanks for looking!

im not willing to split this up at this time. Really the only way I would sell is the whole lot at once. This is because I am already upgrading my farm to FPGA - ive got two BFL singles on the way and if I am able to sell these rigs for around $3500 I would sell them all at once but not interested in parting them out, to be honest if I were to part these out I would do it on ebay because these cards are still selling for $200-$300 used on ebay.

they don't sell for $200 used on ebay

http://www.ebay.com/csc/i.html?rt=nc&LH_Complete=1&_nkw=radeon%205870&_fln=1&_trksid=p3286.c0.m283

and as a seller, you'd have to get a price of $218 to actually see $200

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

the 1gb models get close to $200 on ebay and half of these are the eyefinity six edition 2gb models

I posted a diamond 1gb 5870 for sale the other day for $175.00 + shipping and it sold within 5 mins of the post

maybe I could not get $200 for every 1gb model but I can certainly get close to that and certainly get that if not more for the 2gb models

Most people wont care that much about an extra gb of ram. Especially miners. I know i wont pay more than $150 for a 5870.

The gamers on ebay care, even though the miners on bitcointalk don't.

its not just for an extra gig btw, it also allows you to run 6 displays in eyefinity

if I listed one of these 2gb models for $250 on ebay it would sell within seconds - gauranteed.

Good luck with the sale cablepair! I would so totally jump on this deal if I did not have in mind exactly what you have (migrating to FPGA). I love the 5870s and they make great mining cards, and if one can get them for $180 or below then it's a good deal.

Maybe just keep them and use the btc they generate to replace them piece by piece with FPGAs. So until you can match the hashing power of the whole GPU farm with FPGA miners just keep the GPU farm Smiley Just an idea to consider.

Cool, I want to grab one or two singles as well, but I worry that they won't deliver on their promises (shipping delays, excuses, etc). If you get yours give me a shout on IRC or here, and let me know. I will feel more comfortable handing over money to them then.

I know man it just seems too good to be true, its a very fishy situation, so far they are acting like they are working day and night shipping these things out but I so far have only seen proof of 3 actually being delivered.

one thing for sure there is more going on here then we (the community) know about.

yeah, but unless you overcharged for shipping, you only clear about $160 after the eBay electronics fee

anyway, yes, from a seller's perspective, if i was selling some 5870's, i'd probably put them with a buy-it-now of $190 or $195, w/o any auctioning at all.  pretty sure it'd sell.

but as a buyer, it isnt too hard to eventually get one for $175 or less, if you have a little patience (probably a week tops)
