My System Specs

Default Evga 8800GTX Fair Price

Hi all,
Hopefully I'm not stepping on any toes by placing a query here! I am in the process of upgrading my GPU and will be selling my 7 month old GPU.
Will be selling Evga 8800 GTX vanilla. Purchased in Feb 08 - $420 through DC.
Question is, is $150 a fair price? Personally, I think it is, but would like some opinions.
I do have all original packaging, including accessories (cables) etc.

Card has performed very well and have only applied mild OC'ing.
Ambient room temp. - 21 celcius
Idle Temps - 52 celcius
Load Temp (Crysis @ all High) - 78 celcius

Regards
B Barker

Maybe if shipping is included that is about right. it is just tough to justify now that 9800GTX is so cheap and options like 4850 are out there.

Understand, however, I still look at the Bandwidth speed as well as the temperatures. With my mild OC Bandwidth is 88 GB/Sec and temps are pretty good.
How do most folks ship? I live here on Vancouver Island, so anyone within the Lower Mainland would be reasonably quick. I would ship on my dime!

Thanks
B

I would say the majority just use Canada post. Costs $10-15 for expedited air anywhere in Canada.

As a point of reference there is a 8800gtx for sale here for 150 shipped that comes with the ram sinc kit. Just to give an idea of what its worth.
