Budget Build - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Internets, those look good; I'll add them in. Unfortunately, there's no Micro Center nearby. Would $175 be a more reasonable price for the 6950?

you're overpricing the GPU! Unless you want you're friends next geek friend to say "What?? 200$ for a old 6950.. did he also directly ask you to bend over?". Yes i know you payed mush for it.. That's the cost of being cutting edge, overpriced tech.

At 270$ 7950 is 40% faster

Compared 6950 at same $/fps 192$ if it was new today...

Used/old tech, no warrenty or almost none = ½ price

so i'll say max 100$

As reference tech in around 20% more expensive here in Denmark and i've tryid selling my 6870 for 75$, still no takers

Mkay! Thanks for the input, everyone. I'll definitely take under consideration. Waszipa, I didn't know about that pricing rule, but I'll certainly keep it in mind from here on out. Thanks!
