If you're selling it, post a picture and thread in the BST section. Make sure you read all the rules before posting there.

Depends on what you have for a machine now, your psu, etc. Lots of people would buy your 8800GT, but probably nearer $65

ugh, not worth it than. Im buying a silverstone strider 600w with a q6600 overclocked, but is it worth upgrading yet or should i hold out another year?

Depends what resolution you game at. If you're at 1280x1024, the 8800GT will probably hold up another year. If you're gaming at 1920x1080, it's probably time to upgrade, depending on what you play.

Really, if you don't notice it being choppy, it might not be worth upgrading.

You won't sell a 8800GT for $80.. they are at the most worth $40-50 now.

Talk about reviving a dead thread

I see 8800GT going for $80 to $100 still. New GT220 are like $80 so..... prices are reasonable. My 9600GT seems to go for around $60.

Haha, on another forum that I'm on, 3 year old threads are revived everyday! Back on topic though, I don't think anyone is buying a used 8800GT for $100.
