Got 8600GTS 512 for 7900GS RMA. Good deal?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So yeah I RMA'd my XFX 7900GS and they sent me back a brand new 8600GTS 512. Is it a good deal?

I had planned to sell my used 7900GS for $60 to my friend before it stopped working. How much should I sell the new 8600GTS for?

Im not really sure what's better, but I would still ask for at least an 8800GS

7900 is better. Plus 8600 won't take full advantage of 512MB.

It depends on the game, but the 8600GTS is pretty much on par with the 7900GS.

A 7900GTX is considerably better than a plain 8600GT...but the 7900GS and 8600GTS should be about on par. I would urge for a 8800GS though.

well i mean I already have teh card in my hands. I'm not going to go through the hassle of requesting the 8800GS, sending in the card, waiting for the card, etc. My friend is impatient too because its been nearly a month since he expected to have the card. I'll just sell it to him.
