So, are you wanting to sell your card?

You need 35 rep to sell in the marketplace.

edit: Ah, the OP just wasn't very clear. I'd say that's a very good deal though.

WHICH Sapphire 6950 ?  For MOST of them I'd say heck yeah do it in a heart beat ....

 

IF it's a 1 GB HD-6950 basic version like so ...

11188-01_HD6950_1GBGDDR5_DP_2miniDP_HDMI_2DVI_PCIE_FBC_634414122375271569_200_200.jpg /or 11188-09_HD6950_1GBGDDR5_DP_HDMI_2DVI_PCIE_FBC_634456300089216737_200_200.jpgthen ... mehhh it's OK, but not really as GREAT a deal as those above would say.

 

 

IF however it's one of the other 2 GB 6950's from Sapphire ....

 

11188-07_HD6950TOXIC_2GGDDR5_2miniDP_HDMI_2DVI_PCIE_FBC_634481520527455808_200_200.jpg11188-05_HD6950_Dirt3_2GBGDDR5_DP_HDMI_2DVI_PCIE_FBC_634475572842855911_200_200.jpg11188-04_HD6950_flex_2GBGDDR5_2miniDP_HDMI_2DVI_PCIE_FBC_634414171219021251_200_200.jpg21188-00_HD6950_2GBGDDR5_2miniDP_HDMI_2DVI_PCIE_FBC_634414111226423131_200_200.jpg11188-05-40G_HD6950_Dirt3_2GBGDDR5_DP_HDMI_2DVI_PCIE_FBC_634516214781203844_200_200.jpg

THEN HECK YEAH ... buy that sucker for $200 and be VERY HAPPY with it.

As it MAY also very easily UNLOCK to a 6970 level shaders and w/ OC get you matching or better performance levels.

Especially the TOXIC and DIRT3 editions, the FLeX edition is also a nice card ... and it's hard to beat Reference. The BASIC Dual Fan 2GB non-DIRT3 is OK as well.

 

EDIT: DERP! doh.gif  nevermind, for some reason I didn't see you mention it IS a 2GB card ... then YEAH ... BUY IT ! GOOD CARDS and a GOOD DEAL. thumb.gif

Hmmm ... unfortunately kind of the LEAST desirable of the 2GB Sapphire Cards, with the lowest chance at UnLocking too, and as you can see you could get it BRAND NEW for only $40 more from NewEgg after Mail In Rebate ... but still not a BAD deal, I'd ask your friend if you could look at it ... make SURE it has the DUAL BIOS switch on the card ...

like so ...  15-1.jpg ... yeah it's SMALL so you really need to look for it, just behind the X-Fire bridges near the rear plate of the card.

Make sure the card is at least working and functional in his system (ie. = gets video output on screen)

Also see if HE ever went online and signed up the card on Sapphire's WARRANTY, if I recall correctly you needed the UPC label code ? I don't remember it was a few months ago I did mine.

But as long as the card works ... and YOU think it's a resonable deal at -$40 off for being USED ... then yeah GO FOR IT. And once you get it ... you can check out how to try and unlock the shaders in my TOXIC Club ... it's super EASY ... make sure you DO NOT FLASH the card before you read my Guide wink.gif ... no need to ruin your card.

 

But IF your card can UNLOCK and you OC it ... $200 for a HD-6970 is a GREAT BUY ..... so Good Luck thumb.gif
