$300 for 6950???

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
My friend just got a 6950(2gb) for $300... is it a good deal? I don't know much about AMD cards. I told him to get a used 5870 or GTX 470 for around $130.

That is what I paid for mine, but then again mine is a top-of-the-line model. Although 280-300 is what they are going for anyways.

It's retail for a name brand. I paid $10-20 less that for my Sapphire 6950 Toxic Ed.

Does a GTX 470 compete with it? They are on par with a 5870, right... and the 6950 has 1400SPU(5870 has 1600)

Initially I'd have to say NO not really a GOOD DEAL, but then we don't know WHAT CARD, brand, model # you're talking about either, or what Country you're in, does that include TAX & Shipping ? was it NEW or USED ?
so WHO KNOWS ...

At least in the USA, HD-6950's run the gambit from as HIGH as $270-$300 range for cards like the Sapphire TOXIC, MSI PE/OC TwinFrozrIII and Asus EAH6950 DCII/2DI4S/2GD5 ... to as cheap as $210 +/- after MIR for some XFX cards and the like.

So most likely if you/he are in the USA, he over paid a little, considering many of those cards can come with bundle deals that will include a FREE Game or two or even THREE
OK no, I'm trying to be NICE ... he got ripped off .

Did he buy it new or used? New, then maybe depending on the type. Used, screwed.

I'd take a true early batch 6950 over any of the current cards anyday. The jury rigged volterra pcb is solid.
