So last June I put together a new computer and got an ASUS EAH5850 DirectCU radeon HD 5850 1GB graphics card and a motherboard with 2 x16 PCI slots (The Actual MoBo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) so that I could later buy another 5850 card when the prices declined and Crossfire them. The problem is I waited too long and now neither the 5850 nor the 5870 are sold anymore. So my question is if I wanted to upgrade my graphics is there some comparable product out now for sub $200 I could crossfire my 5850 with or is trying to crossfire it with something at this point just not worth the effort?
Newegg is out but they are still available; fficial&channel=np&biw=1708&bih=944&prmd=ivnsrfd&source=univ&tbm=shop&tbo=u&sa=X&ei=UmEoTtigCoPagAeEmblc&sqi=2&ved=0CCwQrQQ" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://www.google.com/search?q=ati+5850&hl=en&client=fi...
Something like that, from the July best gaming GPUs for the money article that Tom's always posts it looks like they are still relatively powerful compared to the newest cards. Really wish I could find a cheap one somewhere
Dame! That card I linked you to sold for $222.50 and that's a used card, talking about demand for em, I think bitcoin mining has something to do with it. Everybody into mining is snapping up higher end radeon cards.
Congratulations on the winning bid. I'm surprised it went that high, but you get what you paid for, an exact match.
Don't forget to have the warranty transferred over to you. Good luck with it and keep me posted.
