My System Specs

Default what is my Vid card is worth to sell or trade?

Long story short I bought a BFG 260 216 core off some one here, my motherboard fried and it also took out the vidcard so after allot of help from the people here I RMAed the card, they sent me a BFG GTX 285 (BFGRGTX2851024OCE) the card works great eccept that the svideo doesn't work at all and I do watch all of my Downloaded TV eps through my TV so I need the svideo. now instead of going through the hassle with bugging people to RMA this card I have decided to just sell( or trade ) it OEM and then buy a different card, the problem is I am not sure how much to sell( or trade for another card) this card for. any suggestions?

Wow, nice upgrade by BFG.

285's (IMO) arnt worth much more then 275's. Id say $250 at most since thats what 275's are brand new, and since its 'broken', I guess it depends how fast you want to get rid of it....

I have an extra 4890 ( with even an extra cooler, since I install a Thermalright on my other 4890 ) that I may be interested to change.

Take the lowest possible price of the Card and deduct a further 20% - 30% (if you really want to sell it)....may have to deduct more if it aint working properly...re-sale of GPU's is certainly not a $$$ recoup avenue at all, your basically trying to get something for it.

Wow what a nice upgrade by BFG. Someone help me kill my 9600GT

Question, your TV supports only S-Video? No DVI/VGA/HDMI love?
