150 is about right, maybe 175.

Where do you guys get your numbers? I see no add on kijiji for $150 or here or anywhere else for a7950 under 180 ... Also .. Keep in mind the 7950 is just under the R280x .. Performance wise

7950: $150
SAPPHIRE 100352-4L Radeon HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 PCI-Express

I've seen 7970's and GTX 670/680's for as low as $200, with the new cards the old ones drop in price extremely quickly.

You have to remember, on HWC (or any other forum) we are not going to pay premium craigslist/kijiji prices for used hardware.

That was 2 months ago and yes I know the prices should be lower but at the same time you're not going to get a 2010 Mercedes for 10gs when the going price is 25gs like 170 OK but $150 for a card that was 300 less then 4 months ago is a big drop + its much better then most of the other cards still out ... Guess I just can't believe prices fell so much might be better to.keep it then sell it for next to nothing

Honestly....Id say more like 140-145. 150 only if it included shipping.

You can compare it to a car all you want...but you dont own even the 'cedes of GPUs. You got more like the value / 'Pinto' of 'cars'. IMHO keep it and enjoy it or sell it and take the hit. Your choice. ;)

OP - You're welcome to post your stuff for whatever you want. The suggested prices are an opinion on what you'd actually get someone here to pay for them. And if you think you have a better idea of what they're worth, then why did you ask?

As mentioned, nobody here is going to pay premium retail price on used parts. Computer parts drop in value very quickly, and everyone here knows that. Members here also take in to account market fluctuations and factors such as price drops upcoming due to new generation releases.

But if you're that concerned about price, I'd suggest you post your computer on CL or Kij as an 'ultimate gaming rig' and sell it to someone willing to pay retail because they don't know any better. Those are the same people that will be willing to pay $200 more when you add $20 worth of LED's. (Because EVERYONE knows, the more it glows, the faster it goes...)
