Should I sell my 5830 for something newer? Problem Solved

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Right now the Sapphire HD5830 Extreme are selling like crazy, I guess because they're good cards that can be OC'ed? Anyhow I just realized how easy it is to sell something on Amazon. I have all the original packaging, it's still under warranty, and has barely been used... likely only 20hrs total of game play for WoW and Rift.

If I were to sell it, I believe I could easily get $100 or better even after Amazon takes out 8% comission. My question is, if you had that money to spend on a new card that's capable of being OC'ed and is as hardy as this one for around the same price range, which one would you pick?

For the past few weeks I've been up in the air with what to do, buy a second 5830, replace it, or just keep what I have now so any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thank you!

I should note that I'm looking into doing most my gaming on PC instead of PS3 which is why I'm wondering if an upgrade is necessary.


The usage for my graphics card is minimum, still under warranty, have all the packaging and accessories so I'm going to sell it and hopefully will only be charged $10 fee from Amazon, use that $110 towards the 6870. Compared to this card, it seems to add nearly 10fps using the same settings on a similar system.
