Would you sell 3 x 5870's for what??

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I currently have three XFX 5870's and they have been good, but would you sell them and buy another card or two?

What would you sell them for?

Not looking to really pay anything, but maybe sell the three for either one card or two?

I'd keep them until there's a significant leap forwards.

If you're looking to upgrade and looking for my opinion i'd sell them and get 2x Nvidia 570s.

Sell them and crossfire 6950's (flash to 6970)

or go with 570's.

On the Forums they go for around 200-250 or so shipped. I'd probably sell mine for around 220 and Upgrade to XFire 6950's and unlock them to HD 6970's IF I was going to sell and upgrade that way with 3 of them you come out using no money and get two HD 6970 virtually.

Well just had that itch, if I could sell the three and get either one or two cards that would out do the 5870's, I would consider it.
It is that yearly itch at tax time.

I wouldn't touch em, they crush everything you throw at them. Even crossfire 5870's crush everything I throw at them, so there's no need.

Only thing you could possibly benefit from would be going 3 way with a physics cards, or selling two to buy a used 5970 which has no rival but the 580... OR!!!

If you have what i have NF200 chipset with 5 pci-e slots you could go SLI 580 and 260 for physics only , and have both the 580s run at x16

I can't see any reason to sell them. Three 5870s is gross overkill for pretty much every game on the market right now, there really aren't any "upgrades" that you would benefit from.

You could downgrade and put a little cash in your pocket by selling all of them and buying a single 5970, or by just selling one of them and keeping two. Either solution will still kill any available game.

At this point used 5870s are probably worth $190-200 each.

So they've been good to you? I'd keep them.

There is always a chance that there could be problems with new hardware. So If you get the proper fps and function from your 5870s, I'd keep them.

Three 5870s = very fast
