Sounds like a solid deal. Make sure that he gives you a "grace" period of a month or so, to make sure the cards are working harmoniously in tandem. Even picking up one of those for ~$275 will get you great gaming graphics.

$525 to a stranger is fine, but $450 to a friend is more like it.

Best friends? then $400 for the set.

It's not a great deal at all. For almost that same price you can get the GTX660 Ti, that will perform better, will be bought new AND will feature a full warranty.

I wouldn't pay more than $200 for each GTX580.

from the benchmarks i've seen the 580 out performs the 660ti.


and i plan on buying both and i wonder if i could sell the other and for how much.

My advice her is if these cards arnt EXACTLY what you are looking for, then tell your friend to sell them on amazon. Then you can buy your preferred card and he can get the money he wants. Seems like you feel obliged to buy his components (i could be wrong here). AMD has a great deal on the 4 free games you can get with their cards OR you could go for a 7xx series nvidea biggrin.gif

no im not obligated, from what i read i thought they were still pretty decent, i wasn't impressed with the 600 series, and i've ready HORRIBLE reviews about AMD 7950/7970, everyone says they break within a few months lol.
