I am prepared to pay $320 and will buy singles.  Smiley

The going rate on ebay is over $450.  I sold a bunch of them at $410 and while it started slow, had far more inquiries in the end then boards I had. 

So yes..... good luck with that.

$450?

His $300 is closer to the going rate on eBay than $450 (*when you keep in mind that he said $300 "plus" shipping).

The cheapest in the last ten days or so (including shipping charges, if any):

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ATI-Radeon-HD-5970-Graphics-Card-/160746891754?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item256d42e9ea#ht_1386wt_1166   -  $299
http://www.ebay.com/itm/ATI-Radeon-HD-5970-Dual-GPU-Graphics-Card-/130650685580?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item1e6b63408c#ht_1953wt_1166  - $365
http://www.ebay.com/itm/ATI-RADEON-HD-5970-2GB-Video-Card-Alienware-/220959665939?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item337238ef13#ht_1778wt_1166 - $376
http://www.ebay.com/itm/ATI-Radeon-HD-5970-2-GB-512-Bit-Video-Card-/330691230025?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item4cfebbb949 - $390
http://www.ebay.com/itm/ATI-Radeon-HD-5970-2GB-Dual-GPU-Video-Card-Mint-condition-/180822273701?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item2a19d8eea5 - $395
http://www.ebay.com/itm/ATI-Radeon-HD-5970-2GB-Dual-GPU-Video-Card-/170785299922?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item27c398ddd2 - $395

and quite a few right at $400, including some brand new 5970's.

Couple weeks ago there was someone selling a handful or two buy-it-now @ $399.  Probably some he purchased off Newegg for $339 or whatever it was.

You can get them for under $400 on eBay easily.  $375 isn't too hard, if you don't mind waiting a week or so.

$350 is a fair price for not going through eBay or dealing with their fees.

I'd say $300-$325 is a fair price if paid for in cash.  No chance of lame chargebacks or disputes then.

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).

Based on your links I wouldn't say $350 is "fair" but it is a reasonable low ball. $300 is just kinda silly.  When you add "no singles" to the conditions as if you are doing someone a favor by taking a large number of cards valued at ~$400 (based on your links) at a 33% discount it just becomes silly.

Still it is good to see the idiots buying 5970s for $450, $500, $550 have finally run out of money.  You buy a 5970 for $550 you just guaranteed you are going to fail as a miner.

I need 3 more 5970s for my hashing farm conversion so seeing prices fall below $350 would be nice.  Hell everyone should stop buying 5970s (they are hot, noisy, and power hungry) and buy BFL FPGA it is a much better deal  (that way prices fall <$300 for me Smiley ).  If you don't want a FPGA you know you want a 7000 series.  I mean 5000 series vs 7000 series?  7000 sounds a better than 5000.

Well, the reason I was saying $350 was a fair offer was because if you sell it for $400 on eBay.... eBay jacks 9% of that, leaving you with $364. 

$350 offer would be fair for some guy that's done a lot of deals and ppl know isn't going to screw them over.  Maybe not for someone making a first time deal, I guess.

They've actually been coming down from what I have seen.  I will admit I'm not stalking them on a daily basis on there, but I do watch.

could have been before, but not for the last 3 weeks at least.  didn't have any reason to check until about a week ago and it seems like the completed auction tab shows about 2 weeks worth of auctions.

i guess there may be a few fools on there that payed $450+, but there's a page or more of them under $400...  the 'smart' buyer wouldnt have had much trouble picking one up at around $375 in the last 3 weeks

(plus you have to figure some people are using those "second chance" sales.  like, some 5870 I bid $180 on sold to someone for $200, but I was able to buy one from the same guy for $180)

[rant mode on (ignore if looking for useful content)]

There was a period of time about a month ago where I kid you not, not a single auction closed under $400.  Most were $450+ and half a dozen were $500+.  I think the top one was a XFX Black Edition for $550.  This isn't one or two days either it was for almost a week.

No friggin idea what was going on.  It has to be noob idiot miners.  I mean what gamer would want a used 5970 for $550 when they can get a brand new 7970 for the same price?

It looks like the idiots ran out of cash.  Hopefully we can see prices head back to $300 ea where they were in December but if BTC prices spike to $7 expect a run on them again as noobs think all you need is a 200% overpriced 5970 and you can make a quadrillion dollars a month.

I wonder if some people even use a calculator.  Likely the people buying 5970s for $550 have $0.28 electricity and very hot summers.  "Bitcoinz is gonna make me rich"

To add to this rage, I witnessed a couple XFX Black Editions go for >$600. 2, same bidder, closed at $620. Really? I mean,
REALLY? More than 600.00USD? Are you kidding me?

If $300-$325 cash is a fair price, I got the cash and am ready!

Prices go all over the place, that is why I said $450.  Some lower, some higher.  $450 seems to be the average.  

$660

one of those is new and one claims to have a 1 year warranty.  two of them are from over 2 weeks ago..  some ppl just have no patience, I guess.   like when I bought my 5870, I knew I'd be able to get one for $185 or less within a week.  np.   i'm sure you'd sell it np if you did a buy-it-now for $399 on eBay.... cept you'd end up with $363 or so after the BS 9% electronics fee.

this guy sold two more for $395 when you include his shipping charge, closed out about 5 hours ago:

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).

Prepared to pay up to $300 US + shipping for 5970s in bulk

Cheers

I am prepared to pay $320 and will buy singles.  Smiley

The going rate on ebay is over $450.  I sold a bunch of them at $410 and while it started slow, had far more inquiries in the end then boards I had.  

So yes..... good luck with that.
$450?

His $300 is closer to the going rate on eBay than $450 (*when you keep in mind that he said $300 "plus" shipping).

The cheapest in the last ten days or so (including shipping charges, if any):

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ATI-Radeon-HD-5970-Dual-GPU-Graphics-Card-/130650685580?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item1e6b63408c#ht_1953wt_1166  - $365

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ATI-Radeon-HD-5970-2GB-Dual-GPU-Video-Card-Mint-condition-/180822273701?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item2a19d8eea5 - $395
http://www.ebay.com/itm/ATI-Radeon-HD-5970-2GB-Dual-GPU-Video-Card-/170785299922?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item27c398ddd2 - $395

and quite a few right at $400, including some brand new 5970's.

Couple weeks ago there was someone selling a handful or two buy-it-now @ $399.  Probably some he purchased off Newegg for $339 or whatever it was.

You can get them for under $400 on eBay easily.  $375 isn't too hard, if you don't mind waiting a week or so.

$350 is a fair price for not going through eBay or dealing with their fees.

I'd say $300-$325 is a fair price if paid for in cash.  No chance of lame chargebacks or disputes then.

Why did you pay so much bees? You can buy 6990 for $500.

Because, when people in this community either offer used 5970's for $450, or the legitimate cheap deals drop off the map and never communicate with me again, $395 shipped looks mighty fine. And 6990's spew heat out both ends of the card, which makes ducting the heat out of my tiny mining room a daunting task.

And for the record, I couldn't tell that these cards had ever been used. They clock high, and stay cool relative to some of the speeds/temps seen on here...

Donations are welcome!
