I feel kind of bad for not selling my cards on here to members but I can usually get 50% more by selling a card on ebay and its usually to someone in Europe.

I'll be very very surprised if I don't get at least $175 for this, and I'm planning on giving it a buy it now price of $200, which will probably go. I have reasonable shipping charges as well, which helps a lot.

EDIT: For some examples...

I got just under $500 for my 7950GX2 a couple weeks before the 8800GTX was released. I sold my brother's 7900GTX for around $350 at the same time.

I got $200 dollars cdn for my 8800GTX last week....they are still in demand...especially for those that have 1 or more 8800's already and are looking for an SLi setup to crank out those extra fps. The 8800GTX/Ultra is still a good card....and is in many ways superior to that poorly planned 9 series of gpu's.

Update.......my EVGA GTX260 216core arrived yesterday. Installation went flawlessly...... OC'd to 624\1345\2110 for now...runs fast and stable!

I did try the new forceware 180.43 beta drivers and they gave me some problems. So I went back to the 177.79's and they work great w/ all my games....no issues whatsoever. Crysis @1440x900 4AA DX10 custom cfg AND natural mod installed is absolutely stunning!

Bottom line.....VERY satisfied w/ my card and cudos to EVGA's step up program. It's great!

Your card has to be registered w/ EVGA first (you have to register it for warranty purposes). Then check the site under your profile\products to see if there is anything you can step up to.

Good luck.

Thnx karl (oh and i know it looks like i'm new around here but i actually visit this place for a long while now never bothered to register (got way to much forums on my list allready))

Well the Evga GTX 260 192 SuperSuperClocked should arive tomorrow or friday depending on my bank (had to order over the border in the netherlands) cheapest i could get in belgium was around 380 and not even an EVGA one....

The Evga GTX260 192 is going to cost me 300 together with shipping fees

It'll be worth the wait!

It took me 7 days to get mine from EVGA via std UPS ground.
