Not really. They only cost that much because nobody sells them over here anymore. You can get them for $300 or less if somebody has them. Most places are about $450 though.

Mhill2029 I'd sell the 480 definately based on what your bud is willing to pay for it. And you getting a better card. Sounds like win win to me

Same thing applies to most PC components inluding GPUs say you bought that GTX480 brand New at $300US and you used it for even a Month the price should then be around 225~250 "Ideally" for both parties to get a good deal.

Bottom Line: For most PC Components the Value does not go up from the purchase date/value.

ginger_nuts Another simple equation for selling 2nd item's,
Old item original purchase price - equivalent replacement price + 10% of difference = sell off price of 2nd hand item.
