Anyone know what a pair of XFX 5850 Black Edition cards would be worth? I have the boxes etc for them.

The guy who had a WTB thread looking for 5800 series cards is now looking for a 4890. haha

I'm going to use and abuse them for a while yet. They're still kick ass cards.

A few months ago they would have sold for $300+

bitcoins are down, so these would probably go for quite a bit less, say ~$200.

bitcoin is the only reason the prices didnt drop months ago

200 is low more like 120 each

Not worth it to sell them and get new stuff anyway. A pair of 6850's or 6870's wouldn't gain me much if anything, and 6900's would cost a bag of money that to me, doesn't balance out with the performance gain.

ya, 6850's are better in crossfire and only cost $100 each right now, so I think you would have a hard time trying to get over 180 with these.

You could probably get 225-250 for the pair. However if you're doing it to upgrade, not really worth it at this time. Wait for the new amd cards and see what they provide.

I'm assuming no one has read any of my posts in this thread other then the first one. haha

"IF" I made a move right now it would have to be 2x 6950 2GBer's. Minimum! Not 6850's or 6870's. The best price I could find for them on NCIX is $280 each. That works out to about $650 including tax and shipping.

So.... selling my cards for $250 and dishing out an additional $400 right now is NOT worth it. I can live with not being able to max out BF3 and Crysis 2 in eyefinity. If I want them maxed out I can switch to one monitor and cruise along no problem.
