After selling my 8800gtx for around $480 or so, I just bought a card, nearly as powerful, for $300.

The timing was just great, praise the Lord!

So why does this get a new thread? What's wrong with the "I just got my 8800GT!" thread? :D

If I had an SLI board I'd sell this GTX and get two GTs. Then again if I had an SLI board I'd be pissed about the 45nm support fiasco. :D

Yes, if it wasn't for the 680i and other SLI board issues, I'd want to buy one as well. My Asus P5B Deluxe Wifi is great, however. :)

How do you sell it? Is it on Ebay?

I sold the 8800gtx a month or two ago on Ebay. :) Right after the 8800gt was announced, so I was blessed with perfect timing. :D

I see. Well, I don't regret not selling mine, I would never bother with Ebay. What do you do when dispute arises? This is not like returning it to the company.

Too much of a problem.

I was pissed about the 45nm incompatibility at first, but now, come to think of it, I need a new board anyway as the Asus 680i boards can't OC well if at all with any quad currently out there.

Yeah, especially if the buyer files chargeback.

heres a question: Will the Newer pci-E 2.0 Graphics Card Work with The Asus P5B?

Why did you sell the faster card i.e. the 8800GTX in the first place :confused:

Because certain people buy cards for the future resale value.

Ummm, sell faster card for $480, buy almost-as-fast-99%-of-the-time card for $280. :P

Besides, my 8800gtx was a slouch when it came to overlclocking, would hardly budge. Also, others are using the 8800gt with an Asus P5B Deluxe, so I don't think it'll be a problem. :)

No problems at all here ,a GT doesn't push the pci-e 1 bandwidth.

Thats a bit of an exaggeration dont you think ? the GTX is still faster than a GT by ~10-15% esp with AA applied.

But then I haven't pushed mine much yet.

Ya, I don't get how this whole downgrade thing is something to brag about. lol. I mean, most people are probably selling their GTX for $100 less or even lower than what the paid, unless they found a real dumbass to buy it. Ok, so you lost $100 minimum probably more around $150, then they buy a GT for lets say $300... so maybe they saved in money buying the GT what the lost in selling their GTX... maybe if they found a real moron they made like $50. I don;t get the logic in this... silly if you ask me. $50 is nothing for most people here, and quite frankly is not worth downgrading for when you can just wait and sell your original card outright when the new line comes out. Afterall, do you think ur going to get more money for your GT over a GTX when the new line comes out? Chances are you will sell your GT for less than you paid for it just like the GTX and be in the same boat.... meh.
