Too good to be true? (7870)

I was shopping around for a new graphics card. I was between the Radeon 7850 or GTX 560 ti due to a $200 budget. I then stumbled across a Radeon 7870 on Amazon for $86. It seems too good to be true... but the seller has good ratings. Should I be weary or just get it? It's the XFX Radeon 7870 FX787ACDFC.

Looks like it's gone already. :??:  7850 or gtx 560 ti... what to do?
And would you trust buying a used card on Amazon?

I will take the HD 7850 no doubt. GTX 560 Ti is a pretty old card now... The HD 7850 can outperform it easy, even can pass the performance of a GTX 570 if you overclock.

Ok thanks, I'm really kicking myself for not getting that 7870 for $86. It was listed as new too. :??:

$86?! Or did you mean $186 or $286? lol. Someone must be trolling with the prices.

Wow. That seller must be very desperate to sell them. Anyways, just get the HD 7850, you won't regret it.
