    I just came across this EBay posting, with a hilariously ridiculous image... Take a look at it just for the lols.

    This isn't an advertisement for his post, not to mention his price is unreasonable.

    'Murica fuk yeah :help:

    I've been looking at EBay for the past few weeks, and it seems that on average a used R9 290 sells (via auction bid) for between $250 & 280!

    There's never been a better time to be on the Red team if you ask me.

    I'm not sure I follow.. He's a miner. He built racks for the cards. He has experience mining with the 290 over the 280x. He wants to show pictures of his rack to the winning bidder.

    ....But the cards are ALL BNiB? Sounds legit.

    There are only 4 of them up for auction, my guess is the rest are in his rack.

    Got it now, lol.
    I interpreted it as the 4 other new cards were being used in a different auction. :nerd:

    LOL exactly, I love those little cars, but it doesnt make a gpu worth double. What a tart.

    I am debating and ditching m 7850 2gb xfire for a single 290. Put my H60 cooler on it and call it a day. I only game at 1080p anyways.

    ill tell ya, i went from a 7970 dual-x (pre-ghz) to a stock 290 pro, its a significant upgrade at 1080p

    from your 7850, it should be a ridiculous upgrade.

    Plus the extra 2gigs of memory will get you much better AA.
