I picked this card up just a month ago, but think I can make more now by investing my bitcoins.  Looking for a 100 btc or better.  Perfect condition.

Is it the price or is everyone over the 7970 already?

Personally, I'm just not interested in new cards. The kings are still 58xx and 5970's and they are less expensive

I think you'd be better off selling it to a gamer. As was mentioned, Bitcoiners would be pricing it against the 5970.

I was going to sell my 7970, but after a while I fell in love with it and sold the 5870s in my main computer instead.  The 7970 can be undervolted so much that they are quiet and cool while getting about 610mh/s.  Maybe not the most BTC for the buck, but if electricity/heat/noise is any type of concern, 7970 is the way to go.  Especially if your rig doubles as a regular use or gaming machine.

I was going to sell my 7970, but after a while I fell in love with it and sold the 5870s in my main computer instead.  The 7970 can be undervolted so much that they are quiet and cool while getting about 610mh/s.  Maybe not the most BTC for the buck, but if electricity/heat/noise is any type of concern, 7970 is the way to go.  Especially if your rig doubles as a regular use or gaming machine.

7970 is probably declining in value quicker than any income that 610mh/s minus electricity may bring in...

yes, the only reason to get one of these would be for gaming... or if you're doing bitcoins as a hobby and dont mind losing money.

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).
