Asus Refrence 5870 - Page 2

post #11 of 20
screw this 180 *****. don't go less than 230 for a stock reference. Who cares if you can get a 6950 for 220 AFTER REBATE. 5870 ref. under water can hit 1ghz core....you must pay for the privilege to say you had a gpu that hit 1ghz

If there's at least a year warranty left on it go for $190 each shipped.
If not, like everyone else said, around $180 shipped.

EDIT:
With new drivers the HD 6870 is extremely close to the HD 5870 in terms of game-play performance. I think between $180 and $190 for your card is a decent offer. If you want more, put it on Ebay with the bid starting at $210, you'll probably get around $225-$250 for it there.


@ z0so -

The 6950 will be faster than the 5870, therefore the 5870 should be less expensive. Please don't troll the forums when people are looking for serious answers.

you guys gotta be joking. I bought a reference 5870 1 and a half years ago for $420
don't tell me it dropped MORE THAN HALF of its original price

I agree, $180 is too low. The 5870s that were onsale for $170/$180 were crappy non-reference cards like the xfx/sapphire ones. These reference asus 5870s were some of the best 5870s they made, and you can't even buy them any more unless you find them used on ebay.

I would say start at $230 OP and slowly bring it down to $200 if they don't sell.

As an owner of 2x Reference 5870s, nobody is going to buy these video cards for more than $170 shipped. I've tried selling locally for around that price, and everyone that would be interested in one realizes they can buy a non-reference for around the same price. Anyone that would be interested in a reference version (aka the people in the know) already know they can get a 6950 for around $230 and would rather get that.

And yes, they have lost more than half their value. You're talking to someone that paid $399 and $300 respectively for their cards. I am very sad. =(

He's right. I bought a xfx 5870 1gb for $170 on Thursday. And now they're out of stock... Guess thousands of people got that deal

I've got two pretty good cards, and I still want an upgrade to 6990. =P

My voltage was pretty obscene for the settings at 1.33v to get them stable. Temps were good though, as the 5870 cooler is a beast. I still have warranties on the cards (Asus by S/N, and XFX 1st time) so I wasn't afraid to kill the cards. Deciding that I'm going to eventually sell them, I've down clocked it to 960/1300 for every day use.

Anyone buying 5870s should really get the reference versions. MUCH better than non-reference and worth the little bit extra.

By the way this post will give me my 2000 post . I bought these two asus cards at the same time after a couple months of release, i was fortunate to get 2 good overclockers. When I put these up for sale Im not really sure what to get to replace them, im leaning towards the nvidia gtx590.
