Hey guys, I will post pics soon. I have 2 MSI Radeon HD 6970's, one of which is a lightning edition. The non-lightning is about a year old, and the lightning is about 6-7 months old. These cards have never been overclocked, simply because I don't like to shorten the life of my hardware. I buy top end cards because I want to be able to run at stock speeds in acceptable frame rates. The reason I want to sell them is, I've always been an ATI guy, well since the 9800xt. I would like to see how the other half lives. I also got a monitor that supports Nvidia's 3D Vision Technology, and unfortunately it won't function properly with AMD cards, they use HD3D Technology. My total funds invested in these cards is roughly $900.00, at the time I purchased them anyway. I want a GTX 680, which I can get for about $520.00. I am disappointed to only have had these cards this long, only to throw away my money and waste their potential, so I would like about 550.00 for both of them. I'll lose quite a bit of investment, but at least I won't be out anymore money when I purchase the 680. I'll be taking a performance hit also, but I'm planning on SLI'ing the Nvidia eventually. Not for a little while, but you have to start somewhere I guess. I live in a pretty small town, so there is not a lot of demand for this caliber of hardware around here, hence me advertising on here. I still have the Packaging and documentation for both cards, as well as a cd with the drivers, though you'll probably just get updated ones from AMD anyway. I will include the crossfire cables as well. These cards are beasts, and well worth the bundle cost. Also, MSI is a very good, reliable brand. I hope someone is interested, thank you! Have Paypal. The 550 will include shipping cost.
P.S. As I said, I will post images asap, though they will be from within my rig, as I don't have another card to use atm.
I didn't research my prices, I know what I paid for them. I was on tigerdirect and the cheapest one I saw was 320, and it was a visiontek. It also wasn't a lightning edition with a higher clock speed and extra cooling apparatus. I don't know why you would act like my asking price is so ridiculous with your ?!, but I'm not taking a complete screwing. It's still a hell of a deal compared to buying 2 brand new 6970's. If you don't like the price, don't worry. You don't have to buy.
Not to ruin your thread, but something that may help you with your sale a little more... Even at the prices brand new for those 6970s, most people would steer the other way by your asking price of $550. If you bring down the price a little more ($50-100), you'd have more interested as it would make a very strong deal compared to the card that you're looking at purchasing yourself. I know you'll take a hit in price, but at least you may have a better chance in getting the cards sold faster.
