How likely is this?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have two Gigabyte GTX460 1GB's and am now gaming in surround, I really need a 2gb card but don't want to have too sell my current cards (which run really cool, quiet and overclock great) and pay alot extra for the same cards; with a bit more memory bandwidth; brand new that probably won't overclock as well due too the cooler options.

So I want to know what's the likely hood someone here would be willing to trade 2gb versions for my 1gb's with maybe a little bit of money on top (from me to them of course). My 1gb's are still quite new (only a few months old and well within warranty)

Maybe someone was doing surround gaming and has now decided to go back to single screen gaming and doesn't need the memory but wants quiet and cool cards that handle any single screen gaming well.

Thanks

2GB 560ti's are hard to find and most people that do surround gaming go with something a little bit stronger - I personally went from 470's to 580's because of the vram and wishing companies had come out with 3GB ones a little sooner - that being said, I don't think its likely you will find someone that is going to swap, I'd sell the ones you have as they still have a high value ATM and grab something different

-But hey, keep checking the wanted and for sale sections here, maybe you will get lucky and something will pop up, anything is possible!

Thanks, I would love 2gb 560's instead, but I was only initially talking about 2gb 460's, really not likely to happen? I've spent a lot more on this system lately than I probably should have (including upgrading to these 460's and buying 3 new monitors for surround) and there's no chance my partner would just let me spend much on new cards.

A few months ago when I persuaded her to let me get these cards, I only just managed that because I promised I wouldn't need a new graphics card for a few years lol, that would also be the case if I hadn't discovered surround gaming lol

People who bought 2GB models, generally did so because they needed the extra VRAM to begin with... so, I think you'll be out of luck on this one.

That said, you don't really have anything to lose by asking. Get your rep up and you can give it a try in the OCN marketplace.

I've been here about over a year trying to help were ever I can and I've only managed to acquire 5 rep points in that time, by the time I get 35 rep points the 3gb 580's will be as useful as an old fx GPU is now

How much do you think I could get for my Gigabyte 460's?

That first 35 is the hardest.

I remember it like it was just a few months ago...
