He probably got it from Futureshop, they're rediculous for prices. A 4850 on Futureshop is like $280, on newegg $130.
A HD 4850 512 and a 9800 GTX 512 are about even.

Buy the PNY GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB Video Card at TigerDirect.ca

Thats one of many many places ive found it. I didnt know i was supposed to ship for free either. I figured 140 for it plus shipping was fair. I also went to shopbot and pricebat and went from that.

I think part of the problem you're going to run in to here is that you can pick up a GTS250 (same card as this) quite easily for $130 new, or $100 used. There's just been so much re-branding of this card, it exists in so many formats for so many prices.

But either way; good luck with your sale. You're free to charge whatever you want and see if you get a hit. I'd have a hard time swallowing $100 loss soon after purchasing as well. You might want to try RFD and Craigslist too.
