Just got a $375 offer on craigslist for my 7950. Should I take it?

Sell it. This is a great deal and it will be hard to find another like it

Keep it. The money you can get from mining will surpass that

When I bought the card back in Oct. 2013 I got it for $305. So it'd be getting all the money I paid and then some for a 1 year used card.

I could use that bread to get a GTX 770 which is stronger for gaming. And still have money left over. I can also spend about $25 and get an R9 290 if the price drops back down to $400(not likely any soon though)


On the otherhand, I can make $100 in just one month if I keep the card for mining.

what would you do in this situation?

Sell it and buy a more powerful mining card if that is something you want to do long term. You can get a free upgrade either way.

Why would anyone pay that much for an old card? Just curious, but I don't see any justification for it.

I assume it is some unaware people who wish to crossfire their old 7950. The soon to be R9 280 is actually the same thing and are compatible with each other, just as it is crossfire compatible with R9 280X.
