No kidding, I bought a 7900GT PCI-E for $36 on eBay. Your 6800GS probably worth more than that for the fact that it's AGP.
The thing is though, I can't sell my 6800GS, its artifacting like hell on everything, and when I had my old Athlon XP motherboard, I would of had to buy a CPU, Motherboard, Graphics Card and Ram, I brought this motherboard as a stopgap, so I could do it over time, which is working out well, so long as this 6800GS doesn't die on me...
Not to mention, in Australia, things cost a bit more, not much, but it still can be enough to stop someone buying something, eg. I almost won a 7950GT for AU$50, but was outbidded at the last minute, and when your on a student budget, You don't have much, I'm saving up for $30 worth of miscellaneous junk..
