Default Old Cards - Toss 'em?

Been doing some cleaning and found my old AGP cards. Not sure if it's worth trying to sell them or just toss them now and save me the time.

GeForce FX 5200 128MB
PNY GeForce 6600GT 128MB DDR3
XFX GeForce 7600GS 512MB DDR2

I also have two 512MB sticks of Apacer PC3200 RAM that I have no idea what to do with.

I'll pay for shipping plus a little extra if you're just going to get rid of them.

I don't use my Ebay account very much so it doesn't have enough feedback where people would buy from me so it's a waste of time trying to sell it on there. I've been waiting for MikeC to PM me back about selling on here for quite a few months.

7600 gs isn't that bad of a card. It can probably play UT3 @ 10x7, low/medium, and can probably pu ta good thumpin' on Doom 3 and HL2.

For sure.... in fact I recently played HL2 episode 2 on a 6800 GT which is just around the performance of a 7600. I'm still impressed by how well that old hardware is running.

6800GT!!!! Possibly the best buy GPU buy I ever did.

Altough my 8800GTS 640 is now the longest GPU I've owned (since launch day)

Well, that depends.
I still have a nV1 video card, the first video card/processor from nVidia and love to keep it. I have a drawer just for old stuff!

Donīt want to get rid of some stuff. Also have a 3Dfx Voodoo 1 & 2, a Matrox Millenium, etc! Some of these old stuff can be used to build a old rig and play some good old games but then again, nothing like the new rigs to play new games, right?!?

If you will never use them then get rid of them, otherwise keep some of the old stuff in some lost corner and just like you say, get rid of dust and remember the old days!

To put a finer point on this, if you're going to get rid of them, do so responsibly by either selling them to someone *cough*CaptNKILL*cough* or recycle them. Many communities/townships have resources to guide you to electronics recycling centers. Some even have specific days where you can do this. Don't just toss them in the trash.
