Check out the Members Market.

You'll see what second hand ones sell for.

Very little is the answer.

i just cant understand how a card as old as that, and lets face it; not much good for gaming any more can justify that price....

in fact, i dont think i paid that much for it new, about 200 quid maybe

Yep I've seen what they go for. Coincidentally I was looking only a couple of days ago and they most definitely aren't going for the prices you're quoting :confused:

For price checks, stick to MM in future :)

i've done the ``trust`` thing but i still cant see the members market... no idea where it is in the ``user cp`` either

although i've been here years, i dont have the same email and password that i used to when i last purchased, so i think this is screwing me up

i.e in reality my post count might only be 300 since i've changed everything... blame Yahoo for that

It can take 24 hours to gain access if you've only recently done it.

Log out and log in again.

The Members Market is down towards the bottom.

If you're still having difficilties then contact one of the Mods.

I don't know about video cards but i understand why old cpus can still cost a bomb. The simple reason is say you own an expensive server and the cpu dies, its much cheaper to pay £200 for a replacement cpu then buying a brand syatem.:D
