Default What's a fair asking price for a GTX 285 2GB?

I've got a BFG GTX 285 2GB version, was around $500 when I bought it. If I try to sell it what do you guys think is a fair asking price (and realistic!). I'd think it would go for slightly more than the standard 1GB versions.

Yeah I don't think you can get more than $300 for that nowadays

Sold a 1GB for $285 shipped a month ago. IMHO not a lot of people will be willing to pay more for the extra GB.

The Second most important question is if its registered or not With BFG for warranty purposes.

Its Lifetime Correct. Non-Transferable , I am well aware Dan. However much like other members, warranty support is a good thing to provide if you want to sell something for a reasonable price.

Thanks for the info guys. I don't think I ever registered the card which I think only made it a one year warranty, which may be up by now (haven't checked the receipt date). Card works great so I'm not that concerned but I'll factor that into the price when I sell it.
