Default GTX 460 for XFX 6870? Trade

Hey,

Not sure if this is the right place to ask for this, but I would like to trade my GTX 460 to a 6870 so I can use eyefinity. Just wondering how much more money I should throw in if any?

This is the card I have:

EVGA GeForce GTX 460 1GB SSC+


Thanks

Hope you are aware that the 6870 won't be able to play games on eyefinity at high quality, you'll more then likely be limited to low or medium at best. Also, unless you have a display port monitor, you'll need to buy the 30$+ display port to dvi adapter in order to use the third monitor.

Well I really would just like to run 3 monitors off DVI or mini DP to DVI, I am fine with buying another adapter but I do not have the room in my case right now to run the 3rd monitor off another video card. So I was hoping to pick up a 6870 and trade my GTX 460 as part of it.
