post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Well Their has just been a new local add here put up for a Asus 5870 for only $130 with no box or cables, Seems like a great price.

I already own a gtx580 but that price seem to good to pass up, should i get it?

thanks

You get it, buy some cables and sell it for 300

Why would you want a 5870 when you currently have the fastest single card option available? Would it be for another rig?

It's not like you can buy it for Physx. Lol.

id make sure you see it working first, have them stress test it for you while you're there to make sure theres no artifacting/crashing going on. $130 seems way to good to be true...

if it is good, id buy it and sell it for $200

I wouldn't use it.

Do as the others said. Buy it and flop it for more somewhere on the interwebs.

define cable for me please?

I do not see either of those being a "cable"

maybe the cables that convert the molex to the 6 pin... yes my card came with all the stuff.... but none of it is "cable"


I am guess that is what they are saying though, ... for sale: includes nothing, good day, and good luck

Your still goin on about "cable"... LOL, thats just what his add says. If you go to the asus site http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=1LtIlVobSVwQPxMa , Under "Specifications" is says this:

1 x DVI to D-Sub adaptor
1 x CrossFire cable
1 x Power cable
1 x HDMI to DVI adaptor

have a nice day.
