Default Re: EVGA trade up program - GTX 260 216 core coming.....

I'm going to finally upgrade my video card after 2 years. Woohoo.

$255 GTX 260 - $40 MIR = $215 - $50 free Far Cry 2 = $165

I should be able to get around $175-$225 for my 8800 GTX on ebay so I think I might actually profit from this upgrade.

I really doubt you'll get anywhere near that for your used 8800 GTX. Why would someone pay that when they can shop around and get a faster new GTX9800+ for $150. You never know, so good luck to ya!
