My estimate of 950ish *shipping included* feels right to me.

A 690 is about 999 new + 13% tax so $1130. Assuming like most of Alpine's stuff it's in perfect condition and that he's very reputable and willing to help with any RMA. The card retains alot of it's value with the added value of 10 year warranty.

$950 for $1200 of new card value is a reasonable starting point but for sure dropping it lower would move it fast.

BTW, all my stuff is in perfect condition.



Anyway, i need to wait before selling the card. Both one i would like to buy are currently BO or in pre-order.



Thank you all for thoses estimations. You are all awesome.

I will probably '' downgrade '' to a GTX 680 with 4gb of memory. (evga classified or Asus Direct CU II).

This GTx690 is overkill of my use. That GTX690 should be great of a folder. This card will probably do alot of PPD.

For anyone interested in this card, I can vouch for Alpine, having met him personally a few times - we've dealt parts back-and-forth. No issues here with the components conditions.

Of course if you live in Quebec like Apline and myself and you buy one from NCIX, then you don't pay the provincial sales tax which amounts to ~10%. I would wait until January when the sales end at NCIX (and elsewhere) and the free game promo is over, then your card will likely be more attractive.
