Default Value of used GTX 460?

I guess this is a price check of sorts for used hardware but I was curious what the lowest price might be. I don't want to post a WTB thread if the general price for these cards are over $120.

Is it possible to get a used GTX 460 768mb for $100? I would like a 1GB but I might not have the budget.

I would like to buy used because I'd rather give someone the money (over Nvidia) and avoid the tax. :-) It would be nice if it wasn't overclocked but as long as it is not marked up.

Any chance? Or do I need to wait a bit longer (for release of newer cards)?

Edit: Looks like I might have to wait for a new one being sold via rebate (I hate those things!!!! UGH!) as I have noticed a Zotac for $117 w/ rebate. Also, my local store has one for $130 but a 768mb. But, the taxes will increase that. Well, if anyone has anything to add or can advise me, that would be great!

You can buy a new GTX 460 SE for like $150

So I'd say used $100 would be a good deal

Isn't the SE ver. a crippled version?

I guess I'll just wait until I'm ready to buy and wait until ones that are $120 and under become available.

Yeah, $100 sounds like it would be a good deal.

Tiger direct had the gigabyte one for 99$ twice. But that was around boxing day. If you can find a used one for 100$, it would still be a pretty good deal.

I got a msi cyclone gtx 460 768mb for $125+tax and shipping 1.5weeks ago and it had a $25 MIR (as long as I get rebate that makes it $130 when its all said and done). So I would say you could expect $100 for one used if you can find a decent seller, but there aren't too many for sale used yet.

Not sure if you are still looking but there is an open box MSI GTX 460 1GB Hawk through NCIX on ebay for 129.99US(126.16CAN). It would come to about 150 after shipping and taxes. If you wait though you may find a used one for less. I snagged a hawk last week for 130 used to go with my first one, so now I can finally play around with SLI.
