Diamond Reference PCB and cooler 5850

This is truly a gold sample

As you can see it will put a beat down on many 5870's and in fact won the single card ATI tem on ONC's very own Fanboy contest, although I can't find the thread to link .........

So what do you think I could get for it?

Thanks for taking the time to look

Was the vantage run on something other than stock cooling?

Guessing the 06' and aquamark are stock cooler, in which case 1055 core clock isn't ''super'' golden as I had an Asus card that did 1040 on the stock cooler and a visiontek that did 1030.

$210 shipped is a realistic price that might actually sell. Sure it will beat a stock 5870, but so what crank the 5870 to 1000 core clock which pretty much all of them can do and it's all over.

Not to mention, a 6950 is $300, so a even a golden clocking 5850 isn't going to fetch anywhere close to what a 6950 is going for right now.

That's a good point about the 6950 price. I keep forgetting the 58XX is no longer worth what I paid for them a few months ago.

NCIX is selling reference Vistiontek 5850s for $149 at the moment. In all honesty, they can probably do 1 GHz on the core (a lot of them can) with the reference cooler.

I'd say $200. IMO, most people would probably just pick up a 6950 for $275 if you asked anything over $200.
