$53 after rebate, so lets call it $73+tax

Newegg.ca - Shell Shocker Deal. Exclusive Jaw Dropping Savings on PC Components and Electronics.

I think used ones sell for about $80, and this one is good because it doens't need 6-pin pci-e power, I only have a 300W PSU, so it might work?

Yep, just want to avoid it for GPU farms though. No Aux PCIe power would be fine for a couple of cards, but anything beyond that starts to get a bit iffy trying to pull that much power through the slots alone.
