I just found these cards and thought the price had to be a mistake. But I guess not as I found them and already ordered two from amazon. The HD5850 that was so great in the pas is back at 161.99 dollars. How? Sapphire got a bunch of old 5850 GPUs and started making the cards again. I was so stoked.
Check it out Quite the bargain!

Its a killer deal. Anyone know what a 5850 puts out on V7?

from what I can find around 6k a day
I imagine it would get 7K+ at stock. I never folded with it at full clock, but it looks pretty linear, i.e., around 4k at 400MHz, 6K+ at 600MHz. Standard speed is 725MHz, and it should overclock to 800MHz easily, so I figure that 8K+ is possible with it.

I ordered 2 of them and I have one. So I will see how some 3x xfire on sandy bridge does.

I would like to do some eyefinity but I need 1 more 23"LEDLCD.

just get all monitors from around your house

That means I would have 1 47"lcd, 2 23"led, 2 21"lcd, 2 19"lcd.. What kinda eyefinity is that.
Also Cody this machine runs 24/7 folding at 1.44 so why you crying. It never goes over 70C
