I'll try to organize a more centralized way to post deals on hardware since I noticed this forum does not have a section for that.

XFX HD6870 $141 AR @ amazon

Patriot PYRO 120gb SSD - $105 AR @ Amazon, or $110 AR @ newegg

XFX HD6870 1GB (with free Dirt3 game) - $140 AR @ newegg

XFX HD6870 1GB (promo code HARDOCPX4X4B) - $130 AR @ newegg

XFX HD6870 1GB (with free Dirt3 game) - $140 AR @ newegg

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150561

as far as I can tell, those cards are the exact same, except this one is smaller (8.66" x 4.4" x 1.5" vs 10.3" x 4.4" x 1.5"), says "AMD Advanced Parallel Processing Technology (APP)" in features while the other one does not, and is $10 cheaper instead of including Dirt

are there some other diff between the models?

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).

You're right, thanks I'll add this to the OP. They're essentially the same, except for some few minor differences like size and cooler design.

Haven't been updating this, but I just ran into this card and bought one today. Seems like the best ratio of price per mh/s. It's currently OOS, but just order one and they'll only charge you once it comes back in stock and ships. One of the nice features about amazon is that some stuff you can still order even though it's out of stock to reserve one at the sale price. I'll also add this to the first post. Btw, if you didn't already know, the 6670 is the exact rebranded name of the 5670.

Gigabyte HD6670 $50 AR @ amazon
