[Appraisal] Sapphire 290/290X

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Got plenty of these cards SAPPHIRE 100361BF4SR - it's the 290X Elpida/Hynix editions. Most will go with BF4 codes. These were bought in December and used for a cryptocurrency mining operations. Temps were always between 75C-85C at max. Always actively cooled, AC, exhaust, all the good stuff. Properly powered and stored.. clean.

I have boxes, accessories, etc for these cards. Here is the breakdown:
  • R9 290X RMA from Sapphire - never used
  • R9 290 RMA from Sapphire - never used
  • R9 290X mining since December
  • R9 290 mining since December

As I said before, some are Hynix, some Elpida. I also have a few XFX and ASUS cards, but primarily Sapphire 290 / 290X are the bulk.

I want to find good homes for these .. they need TLC just as I've provided.

Will be posting a F/S post as soon as I get some good ideas on where to price them at.

PS: This is not because of the dramatic fall over the last 30 days and more significantly today. I am using more power efficient cards now and want to phase 290/290X out of the equation.

Realistically you're not going to be able to sell the reference cards very easily , especially the ones from Sapphire (removing cooler voids warranty). You'll want to find someone that's going to watercool them and take the risk of having to RMA a card that had the cooler removed.

I'd expect about $500 for the Sapphire/XFX R9 290X and $350 for the Sapphire/XFX R9 290 cards.

For the ASUS/Gigabyte/MSI cards a bit higher since they have warranty that transfers. XFX does have a more lax policy on cooler swaps however.

You think they'll move at $450 for 290X and $375 for the 290s?

Another note I'd probably make is if anyone does buy these, I'd be happy to assist in the RMA process.

Anyone else have any input?

R9 290X = $465 shipped
R9 290 = $350 shipped

Bought my 290 for $340 on eBay a few weeks ago and the prices seem to keep dropping.

Yeah you would get around $450 at the most on the 290x's probably like $325 on a 290.

Here is an open-box 290x for $439

Newegg for the last couple of weeks has had a large amount of 290 and 290X on open box deals.

The non-reference 290X have been going for around $450, reference as low as $400. The 290s have dropped below $350 several times.
