http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102978

two possible buyers w/ decent prices.  just waiting for responses

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).

I'd do $140 for the pair and some sort of escrow because I don't recognize your name.

yeah, just the one for now.  then the 2nd one after I buy a 5870 to replace it.

the $140 is too low, anyway.  

i don't think it'd have any problem selling at $100 buy-it-now on ebay, except that I'd end up losing 10% of that in fees.   but if someone was actually concerned about that, then to ebay it could go.

though I'd attempt a $99 buy-it-now with a $10 shipping charge before lowering the price to a flat $100

my ebay acct has something like 400 positive feedbacks, 1 neutral, 0 negative...   not sure if paypal still has those seller ratings it used to have, but that used to be several hundred as well, though mostly from stuff I sold in '99-'02

I've bought many, many used 5830s on this forum at 70-75 over the past 6 months. It is a fair price for that card in that state.  Saying you could sell it on ebay is like standing in a farmer's market trying to sell some potatos saying you could get a certain price at the supermarket.  There's a reason each market exists and expect each to act like the other is a bit misguided.  So in short, if you think you can get more on ebay, quit talking about it here and sell it on ebay

It's an insulting offer, really.  The type that someone that's planning on reselling it would make.

Give me a break.

Oh, and thx for the suggestion, but I prefer to wait another day or two.

Check the forum history, you can find my buys.  While you're checking, you'll notice I haven't sold any.  I'm a power user of 5830s, I know what they are actually worth.  So you might be insulted because someone gave you an offer you don't like, but it is what it is and perhaps you should grow some thicker skin.

I'm agreeing with imsaguy here, I use 5830's for mining, they sell for $70 + shipping in the US. If you want to sell it for more, you can offer to ship it internationally, but that does come with slightly more risks for both you and the buyer (customs, lost mail, + more shipping costs).

I'll offer you $80 + shipping to Europe (if its a reasonable shipping price, cheapest trackable method available), payment via PayPal or BTC escrow.

The reason you can sell stuff for more on eBay is that eBay offers the buyer protection against scammers, also if the card was to break within 45 days I'd have a much better chance of getting a refund through ebay. That is why buyers will pay more on eBay.


Also, just wondering why you think imsaguy's offer is insulting for your card, is your card able to overclock to very high speeds?

Interesting then that someone just bought one for $97 @

re: your last sentence, did you even read my original post?

5830's don't sell for $70.  Bargain hunters or re-sellers look to buy them for $70, yes.

Screw that.  This card is worth $250+.

http://www.aztekcomputers.com/5830PE51G-BEST-DATA-1030987.html

Don't let imsaguy con you into giving it away for what "other people pay."  That's what all scammers say.
WTF.  That's not a Sapphire 5830.

Regarding imsaguy's claim of $70 each, I will put my money with my mouth is and offer 10% more than him

I'll make a standing offer right here to buy anyone's 5830's (working condition of course) for $77 - no limit.

I said 70-75.  If you want to quibble over $2, I'm game and will do $79.
