Well, also here in Montreal they sell a $15 Sony headphones for $60 at Futureshop. Things are way too overpriced here.
For my estimated values, I simply looked on eBay and Google shopping to get estimates (and I looked at the lowest values I could see, for example if I were to estimate the value of a GTX 570 I would say ~$350 although you could still find models for $400+).
Personally, I don't buy anything locally (or used for that matter); so I usually do not have any idea what prices are things selling on Kijiji. I usually import from the US because it is much cheaper that way and I only have to pay the import which is still less than the good ol' 14.5% of the Quebec province.
Also, yes, I do realize that we're talking about used components, but to see whether a trade is fair, it is much easier to assume as if everything were new.
And I recommend using eBay to sell your 5850 if you don't want it anymore, you're probably going to get a better deal anyways.Edited by born2bwild - 1/3/11 at 2:24pm
