Where do you guys sell your cards?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have no clue where to sell my stuff and I don't know how. A lot you guys make it sound so easy to sell off your parts. I hear some of you guys saying "No problem, I'll sell my GTX 690 for the same price I bought it for" or "I'll dump my 3 680s and buy the Titan". It sounds soooo easy. My question is, where do you guys sell off your GPUs?

Ebay? Kijiji? OCN? Where?

What are the risks? Any horror stories?

I wish I could sell my stuff but I'm so afraid to do so. If you sell someone your video card and meet them in person (ie. Kijiji), how do THEY know it's going to work? I know it works perfectly fine, but what if they try and scam you by saying it doesn't? If I meet them in a coffee shop, are they going to bust out their desktop right then and then to see if it works? lol.

Start with OCN marketplace, ebay also works although you do hear a bit more about attempted scamming (make sure to photo document everything, the item, packaging, etc.).
CL & Kijiji do work, you get lowballed with offers a lot more often. I haven't been scammed buying older stuff when meeting people in parking lots, with expensive new stuff it isn't a bad idea to meet at one house or the other to actually show/see the item working as it should when money changes hands.

I wondered the same thing for a while. I just upgraded my video card for the second time (excluding EVGA stepup program upgrades), and in both cases, I sold my old card here on OCN with zero issues, quickly. I sold an 8800GT on here in 2009 and a GTX 275 in 2013. I don't upgrade my gpu often, since I actually like to get what I pay for, but this is the place to do it. You just receive a payment via paypal and then ship the card.
