Just thought I'd toss this out there for anyone interested...

I'm upgrading to an Asus X800XT and have an Asus 9800XT that's less than one year old that I can let go for $300, plus shipping. :D

I paid $509 for it from ZipZoomFly, and I'm seeing it listed for $400 plus on various websites.

This may be someone's chance to move up for a reasonable cost.

By the way, I'm totally honest about this and NOT a scam artist! ;)

Well... you should post here:

And read the rules.

And at that price I reeaaallly dont think you are going to sell it. 9800XTs are extremely overpriced. Someone could just as easily buy a 6800 NU for $30 less and get much more speed. Even a 6600 GT would run comparably for about $220.

Youd probably have better luck on Ebay. A lot of people still think 9800 cards are the best... just not people here.

We are edumacated :clever:

Is it just me, or did the rules sticky disappear?

Woa... you're right :|

Maybe Mike is redoing them.

Maybe. I'll have to ask in the moderator forum.

I sold my old 9800XT a couple of months ago for around $225 IIRC, and was happy to get that.

Thanks for the reality check... I meant no harm... :D

I do believe 300 + shipping is a little too steep for your graphics card buddy...Back maybe before the 6800 and x800 series became mainstream, that might have been a good deal, but now it's too much. I fortunately was able to sell my ATI 9800xt for $300 back when the 6800gt were first coming out and I felt lucky then. And to whoever pays $400 for it on other websites is a complete No0b unless they are collectors :)

I must admint I was surprised to get 209.00 Uk, (that's 392.730 USD at current exchange rates), for my Asus 9800XT I sold just before xmas on eBay :) I think the 9800 / X800 / XT branding is confusing those not in the know..
