5850's are still worth 120$+ on ebay. They are pretty much on par with the 6850-6870.

Had my eyes on that for awhile, STAY BACK!!!! MINE ALL MINE!

LOL jks, I bet that was an error though. They had a 5870 for $200. I was like wtf, far from worth it.

I don't think it is because a recent reviews says that one guy bought it and that for the price he could not got wrong. Althought he did not specify the price.

This has to be a typo... they better honor it if it is however! I will definitely buy as many as I can if it's true!!! :)

They forgot a zero, twice. I'm running integrated graphics waiting for the prices for new gen to normalize, if this was true I would have loved to grab one and wait a few months.

Yeah but 5770's are quite easy to find for 50-60$ on craigslist.

I was just looking for a temporary card until the prices for the new gen normalize, $50-$60 is too much. I already sold my 6850's at a considerable loss. $350 for a 7870 is robbery.

They are all debranded refurbished cards. Diablotek probably got really cheap cards and parts and threw then together to be honest. Even though I don't trust diablotek. $17 is worth taking a chance lol as long as it doesn't explode...

But the worst thing that could happend is that your card blows up. But it only cost you 17$...

Yeah i am pretty shure 3 of those 5850's would blow the 7870 out of the water unless you play at really high resolution.
BTW i just noticed that my GTX 480 utilises 1.4GB out of 1.5GB when playing BF3 maxed out @ 1080p
