Smile Where do i sell my used graphics card?

with the upcoming release of the 7850 i play on selling my ( recently bought ) msi twin frozr iii 6950 graphics card. i bought it less than a month ago but i extremely want the new 7850 or maybe 7870 ( not sure yet ). My question is where is the best place to sell a used graphics card and how much should i asked for a very slightly used msi twin frozr iii 6950?

Ty for your time and Cthulhu bless you all

Well HWC has it's own BST forum which you can try there. There's also ebay and kijiji just watch out for scammers.

Kijiji is so-so. I've sold lots of stuff on there, but (in my experience) you have to be very patient for the right buyer to come along, otherwise you'll get low-balled.

You won't be able to post in the Buy/Sell section yet as you need 25 posts or more. IMO, it's worth waiting for though as you'll get a fair price for your card. And getting involved with a great hardware enthusiast community is always a plus. ;)

A little off topic, but you do realize that the 7850 actually gets slightly worse performance than the 6950, right?


Oh, and plus one for the obscure reference

i think none of them are bang for the buck, all overpriced because of new 28nm technology stick with 6950 for now until nvidia releases their 28nm and wait for price drop

no less than 150, 200 is very reasonable though since its only weeks old and sees for 300 normally.
