Not sure if you'll find a used one...

Only option is a fullcover block and I believe they go for around $150-200USD.

I don't know how much a block is worth, but I do know the GPU is rather costly - took me 2 weeks to find one at a good price: just bought it tonight actually.

PPCS Has some on sale right now. Search Results : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

Not sure how they compare price wise to other sites. $150 USD is the cheapest there.

You'd be much better with a GTX285, or even a GTX295...

The 9800GX2 is already considered old, but it's a Folding powerhouse....
