http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130944

So with that math: 66% x 320 = $211.20 each.

Now keep in mind that the new models also come with 2 free games valued at about $50 each.

I would come to the conclusion at $200 shipped each, considering they are used and don't come with free games.

I agree with this way of appraising items, most of the times I do find myself selling items for 65-70% of their retail values. So yeah, 200$ ea. sounds absolutely fair for ea. card.

You've basically identified the problem with many of the "appraisals" provided in this section.

People throw out a number that "feels right" to them without having any basis for that valuation. You and I both frequent the For Sale section of various sites and know (a) what comparable items are being listed for, but more importantly, (b) what they are selling for in the used market. In the end, actual sales of comparable items are the best estimate of current value. Sure, there are situations where someone is in a bind and will either sell cheap, or pay a premium to get a specific item, but you can adjust for those factors.

I am of the opinion that it is a disservice to the OP of an Appraisal thread for anyone to throw out an unsubstantiated value. All that does is either create unrealistic expectations, or low-ball figures, but in either case you have not provided anything of value. Folks, if you don't have a basis for your valuation, then keep it to yourself...'cause it is worthless.

I would love to see a rule where people need to try and substantiate their claims AND the OP needs to come back to update their appraisal with an actual SOLD value. I know it'll never happen, but it would help those to understand that people who frequent FS/FT threads like yourself don't just throw out bogus "feel good" numbers for the sake of it. I get neg repped a lot because people don't like my numbers. I laugh to myself when their item sits unsold for months on end after they list it for sale or they rapidly drop the price closer to my initial estimate to generate interest in a sale.

I wish people would put in at least half of this much thought in their appraisals. Unfortunately as Reefa stated, people just toss out "newegg" numbers, subtract a few $ and call it good without actually researching comparable items that may be much less. Sure, yours might be a higher end model, but if someone can get something close for quite a bit less, they aren't likely to pay more for minimal extra features.

I do it differently. I don't have an exact formula like bluedevil. Instead, I go around on ebay, cl, [H], and amazon and see what the card has been selling for and give an appraisal on the average of these numbers mixed with my perceived value of the item. I think this is more accurate representation of the probable resale price since there is hard data (prior sales on other sites) to back it up. Not everyone is as knowledgeable about hardware as you are so appraising an item with the thought that people know all their options and have closely weighed all their alternatives is a bit too optimistic, I think.

The fundamental problem with that approach is, rarely do people put what the actual selling price is in their thread. Sure they may list it for $300 but did they take $250? $225? It gives a good idea, especially if you watch the starting price, length of sale and how many price drops. That lets you gauge what the sale price may have been, but one will never truly know for sure.

I can link you to numerous threads where they are listed at $250 and not selling. Frankly, I don't care enough to bother.
