That is a nice spare no doubt worth keeping just in case you upgrade or main dies.

SLI means I have an identical spare for my sig rig should something happen.

I have an old machine with an AGP slot that currently has a massively underclocked/undervolted 7950GT in it, but I could throw a 6800 Ultra, Geforce 2 MX 200, or Riva TNT2 32MB in it should something happen.

I have a Geforce 4 somewhere, but I haven't seen it in years.

Yeah, I'll be honest, I don't think I could ever sell it. That card is just so awesome.

I've got a GTX 275 and a 4870 1GB that aren't currently being used.

I also have a few old PCI video cards around in case I somehow kill the BIOS on both of my 460s at the same time and need to reflash them with a minimum of fuss.
