    lol you wish :D

    as soon as the 7900's came out it killed the 2nd hand price of the 7800's
    the 7900gt is only £200 new and faster and overclock's like a mf

    i had the same problem when i sold my xfx 7800gtx ee 490/1300
    i got lucky and swapped for an xbox 360 with hard drive 'head set ect and a game
    well i say i got lucky i should say my daughter got lucky :p

    Hi mate, i recently sold my two fir £240 fully boxed one and £220 for an oem one. Not a patch on new value for a card but better than the £150 above!! You should be able to get at least £200-£250 i should think!

    you are joking looks like you found a couple of mugs
    who in their right minds is going to pay more for a slower second hand card and unless they were bfg or xfx they are only £200-£250 brand new

    lets look
    7900gt £200 ish brand new / faster / overclocks much better / full warranty
    7800 gtx £200 ish last gen / 2nd hand /slower/wont oc much / no warranty

    hmmm witch 1 would you go for
    allthough he could find a mug or tuck up a mate :D

    TBH efour2 your best bet would be go to a well known auction site because thats the only place you'll get more money for it 'lots of plums on there
    you WONT!! get £200 on here for it
    i just took a look and some are getting close to it.but they are the 1's without a buy it now price if you look at them they seem 2 not sell so its a gamble good luck with it mate!!!!!
