I bought my 8800GTS 640mb card a year ago at $310 (The average buy price was $400 on ebay but I haggled with a guy and I said "I'll give you $310 for it" and he said "sold".) I just sold my 8800GTS for $300 a few days ago on Amazon.

Yay! :)

Thank god the people on Amazon don't look at eVGA's B-stock:

Yes it was clearly labeled on amazon as "8800GTS 640mb"

I was actually the lowest priced one on Amazon too.

Well i'm not sure if the avarage person would distinguish the old GTS from the new one even when looking at the VRAM (n00bs usually like more VRAM whatever the GPU) , but yeah you've drived a nice bargain!

I used to be one of those noobs lol.... people think more RAM is better.


More RAM fixed my dell's constant hard drive reading sessions lol.

I would say ebay as its more flexible.

I too would say ebay as we don't have the ability to sell through Amazon in AU.

I have only sold stuff on ebay, so I really can't compare the two, but It would seem as though the people on amazon are a little less savvy then those who buy on ebay.

Or ship them to the states...

Amazon is a fixed price so all you have to do is put it below the nearest price and you'll be guaranteed to sell your thing. On ebay, people have to LOOK for the lowest price and they have to waste time looking for lowest shipping etc.

Amazon FTW.

But still all those are auctions that usually sell at 3/5 the price you could sell it on at Amazon.

Nobody looks at buy-it-now's on ebay much.

yeah i'm starting to think maybe i should sell stuff at amazon. ebay seems to be ripping me off with all that, people just try to find stuff much much cheaper.
