Default New MSI Radeon HD 7970

I would like to sell this for $500, because I really need the money back and made a mistake buying it. I understand that it may cost more than some 7970's, but not after tax, and since I have only used it for a week, I think it is a fair price.

I honestly doubt you will be able to get 500$, is it the reference model?

People are selling reference model for as low as $400, i doubt you will be able to get $500 for yours.

Yes it is and I know I probably won't which is unfortunate because I just bought it without thinking, damn me and my impulsiveness.

If its only a week old maybe you can return it take and pay whatever restocking fee?
MSI has a 3 year warranty but I dont think its transferable. $500 dollar card with no warranty isnt going to be worth $500 to most people.

There's no way you're going to be able to sell that for 500$, 400-425$ is moreso the range you're stuck at

Hmm, I wonder if Canada computers would take it back with a restocking fee, Thanks snoosebum, and yes I know I probably won't be able to sell it to anyone for $500.

Yeah, I suggest taking it back to CC. The loss will probably be smaller

Anyways.. I'm also a victim of my own impatience (bought a 7970 in feb). I was planning to maybe try a trade for a 580 + cash, but I'll probably just stick with it

Canada Computers charged me only 5 % restocking fee but that was a return I made in less than a week and was also just a keyboard. Maybe you will get lucky.
