Dual PCB BFG GTX 295

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Wondering what I could get for my dual pcb gtx 295 from BFG. The card runs a little hot, idles around 60*C and I have seen it load up to 105*C during cut scenes in Crysis and SC2 both with graphics maxed out. I think there is an issue with the way the heatsink is issued so if the buyer wants it I could send them an unopened tube of MX-4 if they need it. I was thinking $180-$200 but what does OCN think?

I'd try running maintenance on the card first before selling to try and reach that price point

two things killing you is the defect you mention and no warranty

180 isnt unreasonable, its on par with a 480 and they sell for 225-275 pending model

I purchased a 4g tube of MX-4 to attempt to re-seat the heatsink on the card but I've decided to just move up by trying to snag a good open box newegg deal or something in the for sale section here, not sure if its worth my time to open it up if I'm simply planning on selling it off. I think I am going to post the card for $180 but mention the temps so as not to scam anyone and see what response I get, I also have bad airflow, there is essentially just the graphics card's fan blowing on it.

To be honest no one here will give you $200 for that card especially since its BFG, but considering most cards here dont have warranty, that shouldnt be an issue. You are looking more like $150 max.
