Does anyone know why the Sapphire Eyefinity 2GB HD5870's are going for so much on eBay? I had one that I couldn't sell on this site for $50, but I put it on eBay and it is now bidding over $200 with a week left.
I was suspicious at first, but I checked around eBay and it seems all the Eyefinity editions are going for close to the same price. The regular 1GB reference cards are not. I know that the 2GB of memory is not THAT helpful... certainly not enough to increase it's value by 4x's. I also don't think Eyefinity is the reason, as you can find cheaper newer cards capable of large multimonitor setups.
The only thing I could guess was this had something to do with bitcoin mining or the fact that Apple sold OEM versions of the 5870 as upgrades for Mac Pro users back in 2010/2011. For people who want to upgrade their old Macs, I think they have to use that card. But it is not the same as the Sapphire Eyfinity I don't think, even though both can connect 6 monitors.
Anyways, I am just really curious what is going on here... anyone have any ideas?
