The title pretty much says it all. I'm looking to downsize my current build and I can skate by with a different card for the foreseeable future, and I want to list this thing on Craigslist but I'm not sure of it's current value.
I bought it about a year ago, just as the 600 series was really kicking into high gear and picked it up for about $200 brand new (got it on sale on Newegg) and I was thinking of listing it for about $175 and take about $160.
Does this sound about right or am I way overshooting here?
I think you're overshooting it. a regular gtx 560TI underperforms a radeon 7850, which sells for around $170 and comes bundles with games. yours is probably on par with a 7850, maybe even a tad faster, but still, being used I wouldn't pay more than $150 for it.
however, you can post it for say $175 on craig's list or ebay and take your chances, not everyone keeps up to date about the graphics card market.
I'd say your best bet is with someone already with one card and looking for a second for SLI
From what I've read and seen, my card performs within 5% of a 570, and I personally like it a lot. I have a 600 series card, so having a 500 series is kind of moot. I suppose $150 would be a good price. Consider I'll have used it for about a year and taking only about a $50 hit isn't so bad. I was thinking the same thing about aiming for someone looking for it to SLI with another. I don't think your average joe will want a 500 series because a simple google search will tell them we're now at the 700 series (although it is still pretty damn good, at least IMO.)
