Smile Selling geforcefx 5900u

Hi everyone, first post here.
Anyway straight to the point, i just sold my 5900u for £150, do you think i got a good price?
And another thing, if the NV40 is priced $400 or $500 in the US does that mean it will cost £400 or £500 in the UK also or will it change?

im only askin this cos i can only get £400 and im hopeing that this will be the UK price, any info would be appriciated.
thx

People in the UK tend to get screwed on the price of hardware. US $500 usually means £500 when it comes to the latest and greatest. Unless that's changed in the last year or so.

And the $270 you got for your 5900 seems about right in line with what similar cards are selling for on eBay.

Look at about £500 incl. VAT or maybe a bit more. I saw in a french review RRP is €550

Man, I really want to see how much the 9800/FX5900 cards drop to once the newest generation is released. I've been looking forward to getting a deal, as a major AA/Aniso user I'm looking to get a cheap upgrade on my TI4200.

The RRP I saw quoted over at B3D for the 6800Ultra was £399, which is (to the pound) what I was expecting.

$500 * (£1 / $1.80) + 17.5% VAT + 22% stupid consumer tax = £400.
