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.

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?

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:

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.

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:

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...
