View Full Version : Trade XBox360 for GeForce 7800GT/X?

My neighbour won a XBox360 via the Pepsi Be-the-first-to-play-win-a- xbox360-every-10-minutes contest. It'll be delivered somewhere around November 21st.

Now he's one of those counterstrike l33t d00d teenagers playing on a glorious GeForce FX 5200. He's not a console guy though, and yesterday he asked me if it was possible to trade his future winnings for a current gen 7800GT or possible a GTX? I couldn't really give him a straight answer since it will be late November and I don't know how far ATi will bomb for 7800 prices to really drop.

I wouldnt but thats just me (dont play consoles much) But id be pretty pissed off when that day came and he said "Here i changed my mind i want the console instead" But if you can honestly trust him then yes, the trade part aint the point, its if you can really trust him or not.

That's a very hard one to call, really is.
If anything I bet you could land more than that off eBay for it when the demand increases just before Xmas and stocks are faltering.
How much will the 360 be going for over there? ...Dollars wise I mean.

Don't play consoles, and probably never will (43 years old), therefore, not interested.

if he gets the xbox360 at or around launch time, it will be worth much more than the $400 that a GTX goes for right now. he should ebay it and take the money and buy the card himself.
