    Price Check - EVGA GTX 8800 retail boxed

    Hi,

    Final component for now.

    I'm having a clear out, and so would like a price check on my eVGA GTX 8800 GTX.

    Several years old but still going strong folding for Hexus! Due to age, card will be out of warranty, sold as working.

    I also have a water cooling block for this, which I had never fitted - I think it's a swiftech one. Not sure if I should include in the sale. Advice anyone?

    Many thanks

    Mike

    CeX will give you £45 for the 8800gtx and £198 for the 295 (I think; they may not take stock WC cards). they have two stores in LP.

    Considering postage the 8800 seems a good price. The 295 may be worth more.

    I'm thinking try and get rid of the block with the card; i could be wrong though.

    Re: Price Check - EVGA GTX 8800 retail boxed

    I paid 50 quid for a refurbished (7 day warranty) 8800GTX six months ago. It lasted six months before dying and has been rejuvenated by baking it in the oven.

    I wouldn't have paid much over 50 quid - but at that price point there's nothing else that's as fast and exhausts air out of the case. Pay a bit more and cards that are almost as fast start to surface, and they're not saddled with some of the limitations of the G80 core.

    Thanks for the feedback folks.

    Think I'll try the items individually, with start prices of £50 and £200 for the GTX 8800 and GTX 295 on ebay.
