How about being a little more specific? I don't see what you're complaining about.

You're missing the point.

This is nothing more then a publicity stunt. The card isnt actually 'stolen'. You should WTFV and RTFA first next time

I like the vid but the ebay auction was/is strange. If it was for charity that would make sense.
I see now the ebay auction has been removed. hmmm

update: ebay auction not removed, just the link didn't work for me anymore I guess: ebay: XFX HD 5970 Black Edition LIMITED

It wouldn't surprise me if xfx had the top bid under a pseudo account. What better way to advertise then to sell one of your own graphics cards for a ridiculous amount?

And I think this because I dont think anyone in their right mind is going to pay 11 grand for that card, regardless how rich you are.

lmao look at the bid retraction and cancellation history

I wonder, with all those loopholes in ebay/paypal policies, what if the buyer with high rating does a chargeback? The seller barely has any feedback. They probably just wanna test the audience for a price to set this over-hyped card at
