View Full Version : Where would I sell a pro gfx card?
11-08-2006, 11:56 PM
Any ideas? I'm thinking Ebay is way too general, that no one is going to be heading there to take a peak at a (originally) $2400 video card.
Is there a place where pros buy/sell/trade ?

i sold a quadro fx 3400 on ebay (back when they were the newest cards on the market) for $950....i dunno about the return on a $2400 card (wawawiwa...that card is for a real man!)

I tried Ebay with this card actually, part of why I'm at a loss. :) Quadro FX 5500, starting bid was at $1200, not a single bite. Put it back up again, but yeah...
Had I known i owuld be changing jobs so fast I would have never. hehe

I dunno man people are real skeptical when buying pc parts from ebay.

I dunno man a lot of people are skeptical about buying on ebay.

Was my guess too. I loathe using a public forum for it too, as people seem to only see the side of "they're selling something", and not the side of "at $1000 less than what they paid for it three months ago". Hehe
So here I am.
It's all fine, the worst thing that can happen is that I keep the card, not exactly a death sentence.

Timing could be off.. I just picked up a FX4500 for $800. Try lowering the price (with reservation) to get the bidding started..

new SGI O2, set me back about $10K back in the day... I could finally bring myself to dump it last month after collecting dust for the last 2 years. And get this.. I had to PAY to throw it away (electronics recycling fee)
Sell it for less, soon noone will take it for free.
