price rot

Discussion created by hardcoregames™ on Oct 26, 2014

I am a gamer, nothing fancy

in recent times with the bitcoin etc bubble, eBay etc have been flooded with 2nd hand cards being auctioned from 99 cents onwards

so many cards have poured into the market that I can now afford to but radeon cards 2 at a time

hd 5450, $9.99  and no bites, but I have one of these already, that i use for testing etc

yesterday a HD 5850 closed for $38

a HD 6950 went unbid starting at $63

r9 270, begging at $140 no bids

my board is 2-way CFX or SLI so given I am as price sensitive as the next guy this makes AMD a competitive choice that may well tilt the playing field
