Default GTX 285 value

just wondering what the value of a GTX 285 is roughly. I've got one sitting here doing nothing and it's actually a third card so i don't need it as a backup. So here it sits and i am thinking about letting it go

Isn't 150$ a bit to much for that card? A 460 GTX offer the same to better performance for less heat/watts.

Well, I suppose that's the price for old hardware. 150$ seen not so bad.

I would say $140, I've seen 275s go for about 125 and 460s for around 150, it'd be somewhere in between. You might be able to get 150+ if you're patient if someone wants to go SLI on a card no longer produced.
