Default Wondering on how much an 8800GT with AC cooler would go for...

Hey,
I have a 8800GT with the Accelero Twin Turbo from Arctic Cooling. Was thing of upgrading to a 260...but not sure.
How much do you think I could get for it?
I'd probably have to upgrade PSU from 430 earthwatts though

Canadian Prices: XFX - XFX GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16... - GX260NADFF

Thats the lowest price I could find, you can try getting NCIX to price match that =) and yeah you will have to upgrade from that PSU I really dont think it will support that card.

i got brand new BFG 9800GT for $130 at local shop!

When people buy used, they either need it for SLI or most of them hunt for best bang for the bucks.

Performance wise 4830 > 8800gt and you can get them for $100 during ncix specials
