    Re: price check : vtx 5870

    They hit a retail low of 170 iirc. They are now inflated due to being eol.

    The VTX may not be bad but iirc is not one of the better coolers and I am unsure if it has voltage control. Is it a V1 or V2; it should say AMD or ATI on the PCIe plug.

    CeX offer £82 iirc. 125-150 seems reasonable to me; much more towards the 125 end though. 5850s can be had new for 130-140.

    You caould try to sell it on here and skip feebay. If you get 130 here its going to be about 150 on the bay. You could relist it for longer if you are prepared to wait; there shoud be a reasonably limited supply as imo there is no point in upgrading for one yet.
