Closer to 100 methinks.

Edit: I personally think it's worth more than that though. Just my biased opinion.

It can make $4 a day mining litecoin right now. Atleast thats what I get with my 6870 and the 5870 is supposed to be better by about 10-15%. $100-120 is common for 6870. I'd say you could get $120 right now for the 5870. Any more and you'd be waiting awhile to sell it.

That doesnt make sense, if a 5870 mines better, why is it worth the same as a 6870?

It def does. Most 6870s go for about $100. The 5870 gets about 80 more khash than a 6870 but at the cost of more power so in the end they almost equal out unless the buyer has free power. You could get $140 maybe but you seem like you prefer to move things a little faster than most from what i've noticed so that was a factor in my price estimate as well.

Because it costs more money to mine, if you make $4 per day but it costs you $3 in electricity that isn't very good.
