(Moving my auction thread from https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=87506.0 to here...)

I am auctioning a set of 3 x HD 5970 which are half defective and out of warranty!

One mines fine for a few hours, then hangs.
One fails to initialize during POST (it is not seen by lspci), other times a reboot fixes it.
One causes kernel hangs as soon as Xorg starts.

Auction started at 30 BTC for the lot (bid by zvs from this thread.) I pay for shipping, and will ship anywhere in the US.
Auction ends Sunday, June 17, some time in the evening - pacific time.

what are you talking about?  i never offered 50

some admin can even verify that post was never edited

but why lie about that?  so i don't even want to offer 30 now, even though i'd get double that on ebay

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).

zvs: I am pretty sure I read your post saying 50... If I misremember, sorry.

Looks like the cards should go to MrTeal. I will end the auction in a few hours.

When does this need to be paid? I'm going to bid 24, but I can't pay until Tuesday unless I get a loan or can pay in USD.

Don't get caught up in the game and have a nice day!

LOL.. I don't know why I do this, the last thing I need is more half working hardware kicking around.
25BTC+half shipping.
Alternately, 22BTC plus I'll pay all of the shipping. I have cash sitting in PPUSD and I hate them having my money but don't want to pay their ridiculous FOREX fees. Smiley

The more I think about it, zvs was probably right... He never edited his bid. Sorry buddy!
