ATI HD 5870 2GB DDR5 Eyefinity 6 Graphics Card - 269.99

Postposted on Thu Nov 10, 2011 10:31 am

Saw this, cheapest on pricewatch is 358.99 and they are selling on ebay for 379.

I've never bought anything from them, so maybe buy at your own risk. But looks legit. Anyone know if these cards are still in demand?

*EDIT: Deal is done. JustAnEngineer found this one on Newegg and it's a better deal.

For a 5870? At that price? You can get a 6950 for that price. I'm really confused.

The feature here is the ability to connect six monitors to a single card and use them all together while gaming with Eyefinity.

There are other cards designed specifically for the multi-monitor Eyefinity experience that weren't the top gaming card of their day--like the XFX HD-677X-Z5F3, which supports five monitors per card.

I'm not sure that this is really that great of a deal. I got an Eyefinity 6 HD 6950 last May for about that same price. Unless GPU prices have gone up, I'd stick to the 6 series.

This one? I agree that it makes the HD5870 deal look bad.

Newegg also has a simiilar Radeon HD6970. The 5-port Radeon HD6770 that I mentioned is here.
