Default GTX 680 Lightning

Just wondering what a GTX 680 Lightning would generally go for?
I've preordered a 780 ACX and figured I could re-coup something back by flipping the 680.

It's in perfect working order and has the box and all original accessories.

Thanks.

I'd guess $400-425. Awesome card, but with the GTX770's now matching the performance it probably won't retain more value than that.

Personally I wouldn't pay more than $350 shipped for a used 680 seeing that 770's MSRP is $399.

Well, the new 770 Lightning goes for $449 new, and it's almost identical in performance to the 680 Lightning. Lightnings are worth more than stock clocked cards in my opinion.

If it's barely used (i.e. < 6 months) I might be able to see justifying $390 shipped. I paid $380 shipped for a reference 680 and I felt I was being generous paying that much. With the GTX 770 pricing and people's obsession with not paying decent coin for used computer hardware, I just don't see anyone willing to fork over $400, even for a card with such great build quality.

I hate to say it, but even if they are close to identical in performance, the fact that it's not a 7 series will bring the price down a bit. I have seen 680's dropping for $350'ish because of the upgrade bug.

That and you said yourself someone could have "new" for $449. I think that would take $100 off righ there.

I would say considering the GTX 770's pricing you would probably get between $350-375 for it
