Less than 1 month old with receipt and original packaging etc.

This is an awesome card with 2GB of VRAM that eats high res or AA/AF for breakfast. Review: http://goo.gl/vPKDl

I have also flashed the BIOS to 6970, and extensively tested as stable. So you get the performance of the 200$ more expensive card with the flick of a switch! BIOS 2 keeps the stock firmware, BIOS 1 has the 6970. I will include a CD with the programs and old BIOS if requested.

Why am I selling 2 of these awesome cards? Because I use 3 screens in Eyefinity and when you use Eyefinity AND Crossfire you can get micro-stuttering, I do. Note this does not with Crossfire single screen or single card Eyefinity... only when using both together. So I have gone to SLI GTX580 which doesn't suffer from micro-stuttering for me.
