Okay so I have a person in my building that is willing to sell a HD 6970 used for 155 bucks is this chance a one time thing? Because I'm really debating on it right now since the prices usually range on avg 170 used on these.

Or should I just aim for a HD 7770/GTX 650 on sale?

the 6970 will eat those other cards up for breakfast!! the only way it falls down against the other two is power consumption. if you can trust the source for the 6970, and it's a comparable price wise to the others, I would choose the 6970 any day.

So is 155 dollars really worth the cost for a 6970 used? I think it's a sapphire dual fan or should i just save 45 bucks or so on other parts? Just wondering cause it is a one time chance before he sells it on ebay.

6790? Or 6970? Im pretty sure its the latter. If it works fine, no tearing, no boxy squares etc etc on the screen. Get the 6970.

I forgot to mention that it's for a computer i'm slowly building so it might take maybe 3-5 months before my computer is fully together. Should I hold out or still jump the gun?

3 to 5 months is a very long time, can you assemble it quicker than this? Otherwise it might be better to wait, you'll probably get other deals by then. You also need to test the card ASAP when you receive it to make sure it works, do you have a friend with a PSU powerful enough to test the card? Because there is no way the vendor will reimburse you if you realize the card doesn't work 5 months after.
