2GB 670 would do worse in things that use extra vram such as BF4, where 3GB is used pretty quick, and then you are out another like $80 for a waterblock to make it like the hydro-copper.

Not sure why you think a water block for a 580 is going to cost you $80. I just bought an EK here on OCN a few days ago for $30 and I know of a second one for $42. Here is a link to the For Sale thread where I bought this item...look at the last item under "Sold".

http://www.overclock.net/t/1415839/evga-gtx-670-ftw-evga-gtx-560-ti-448-ultra-classified-evga-gtx-470-sc-evga-gtx-260-216-core-diamond-5850-1gb/0_40

...and this is precisely what I'm talking about when people say "so and so should be worth X amoun"t...without first making any effort to substantiate those values. This $80 valuation for a waterblock is more than twice what I just paid and only a few dollars shy of twice the price of the other one that I'm looking at. The Hydro Copper is a nice looking block, but I don't believe that it is worth twice that of an EK block.

This is also overclock.net marketplace, where things get sold to undercuts, compare to other sites or ebay and its a different story.

3GB GTX 580's still max out nearly everything you toss at them

In addition to OCN, I regularly frequent the Classifieds of [H], XS, Anandtech, OCF and TPU and seldom see much of a difference in pricing between any of them...for that matter, it is common to see the same item listed by the same Seller on multiple sites, so OCN doesn't stand out to me as being lower priced.

The thing about eBay that drives prices up is that people often get into a "frenzy" when bidding on something and go overboard, so yes, pricing there is sometimes higher...but so are Seller fees, if I'm not mistaken, as well as the amount of disputes. At the same time I have won some auctions on eBay that I was almost ashamed to pay so little for them.

All that aside, the OP requested an Appraisal on OCN and did not request, or stipulate that these items would be sold on eBay, so I think valuing these as "forum sales", as opposed to eBay, is valid.
