View Full Version : Fair trade for my X-box which I love?

I am kind of rethinking it but anyway, after mentioning I wanted to upgrade to a pal in my clan he mentioned he wanted to trade or sell his MSI 5900 for the reasons everyone does, DX.9. I opted to trade a X-Box with 8 games(only play 2 regularly) and $50 of which he says he will sleep on (the deal:)). I had made up my mind to get a 9700AIW for its DX.9 performance for future games, mainly HL2 for $260 charge but do you all think this a better deal?

I dont care if DX.9 performance is up to a 9800 level(not that I dont care about it), just as long as its acceptable. Say resolutions of 1280x1024 no AA, 8xAF. I am able to run that on my current card a Ti4400 with no hitch in most games. I am assuming after the trade that will carry over to this card, but I read all these sites and it seems thats not feasable with a 5900 but I do it with DAMN Ti4400 from last year. But oh well.....


This is the card, a MSI 5900. Fair trade for the performance over my Ti4400? I love the X-Box and 2 of the games but am thinking it may drop to $99 soon anyway.:)

I think yer nuts. 5900 Non-Ultra ain't worth an XBox, 8 games, AND $50.
Come to think of it, neither would an Ultra.

But it's your choice.

Thats a pickel, myself i cant stand consoles, so i would trade my consoles for a PC part in a heart beat.

But id make him pay you 50$, just try to get the better end of that deal.

Ditto.

But in fairness... I'd say for a Non-Ultra... make him cough up the $50... for an Ultra... straight trade... no money.

KEEP THE X-BOX! What you offered is too much and you're just cheating yourself.

I should say that all the games are not crappy but old most are selling for $15-$20 new, with only Halo and Madden NFL 2004 going higher. But I agree I am going to see what he says to a straight trade or just $25 instead of $50.:)

Have you looked into selling your stuff on Ebay? You might be able to sell it for enough to buy a 9800 nonpro or something.

NO WAY!!! Don't do it. Your xbox is worth more probably give you more enjoyment, and if you get it modded, you will will not use you comp as much for games.
