    Question Should I buy the amd 7990 considering the price I'm getting it for?

    Some guy that I know offered me an Amd 7990 for $380 CAD. So as the title states should I buy it? It's for my friend by the way.

    $380. No. Not even if you're bitcoin mining. Spend a bit more and get a 980 or get a 390 or a 980 used.

    Yeah figures, most things i've heard about this card are negative. Thanks for the advice. I might just end up getting my friend a 390x or something.

    Yeah. High power consumption (not effective either) expensive AF non optimized for mantel. I remember ASIC and BTC mining rush and the 6000 and 7000 series did over 100K sales while the 300 series was coming out. They then sold for like a fifth of their inflated price. Tl;dr Don't bother.

    No point, Just go with a 970 or a 390. That seems to be the sweet spot right now

    bitcoin mining is something completely different because you need much more graphics card's and miners he's just looking to upgrade his build

    That's why I said not even if. Because the ole Raedon Series were so popular with BTC and ASIC now sellers are desperate to get rid.

    I got it from one of my friends for $150 CAD, he needs to order them from his supplier though. His supplier seems pretty damn sketchy though, but he's gotten me a 980 ti before for $200 so I couldn't really care.

    I would invest a bit more and get a more updated card. For example the 390x is pretty good.
