So I have two Rog Matrix HD 5870s in CrossFire on my GFs computer.

I know the cards are sort of rare now-a-days and I would like to upgrade her CPU.

So I guess what I'm asking is what do you think I can get for both of these cards and are there any interested buyers out there?

Again its two of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

(please watch the video on this site for lulz)

Let me know what your offer is if your interested, if you're not but still an enthusiast of these (almost 3 year old bad boys) let me know.

hmmm i am tempted to buy at $60 a pop.

For what they can do $120 for the pair is pathetic. I can't let them go for less than $300. Call me crazy.

They're nice rarity cards for sure. I remember my overclocked GTX 460 1GB's in SLI beating these (and a single overclocked GTX 580 1.5GB - which is even with an overclocked HD 7850 2GB), and I've seen GTX 460 1GB's sell around $65 - $90 depending on how fast they want it to sell.

I'd say at least $100 per card is a good starting point.

Granted $100 card isn't bad. They still in crossfire out perform my my old GTX 560ti 448 by a landslide, with 4GB vram they never get a hiccup. But, what is frustrating for me is I can't get an accurate benchmark on how to sell these cards because they are in fact rare, albeit antiquated; searching New Egg and Ebay and Amazon is how I came up with $150 per card. Especially since some 5870s 1GB vram are going for 179.99.

The Matrix HD 5870's are worth $130 each. Excellent cards and they are very appealing.

Dont let these guys lowball you.Id say $250 for the pair someone will buy them at $125 each.Considering used gtx 480's still go for $175 a pop and the 5870's are not to far behind those.To the person offering $60 a piece you should be banned from this forum for a stupid offer like that.

If you want to sell them, put on a price and see if they sell. Good luck with the sale.

Agree, put a price on them and see how it goes. My idea of pricing is based off of two things:
1. What's the equivalent price per performance current gen unit you could get instead?
2. If someone else was offering the same unit, how much would you pay for them?

So, if you priced them at $300 for the combo, that means you could buy a used GTX 670 for that, or a new HD 7950 or a used HD 7970 if you're lucky.

If that was you making a decision on two HD 5870's (even if they are Martix's), would you choose the two used HD 5870's over a single used HD 7970? Probably not.

At most, like people say, both in Xfire are comparable to a GTX 480 / GTX 570 / HD 7850 / HD 7870. Those are all going anywhere from $150 to $200.

At any rate, best of luck in your decision to keep or sell them!

I would say $250 to $300 depending on the condition and a bit of luck. There are forks on the market looking to buy old cards.

When run in crossfire you don't utilize the total amount of vram of both cards. Instead the vram is mirrored.
