I was thinking of selling my 2900 xt in place for the new cards coming out over the next few months...

I heard this series was good for overclocking but since I don't OC that's not really that big of a deal for me.

How much could I get for it in USD?

Considering it performs similar to a 512MB HD3850 or at best HD3870 , which can be had for just over $100-130, I don't think it's worth over $100 used.

But, considering the cards are rare and still priced very high new, you may get alot more from the uninformed, or from someone looking to crossfire their HD2900XT.

I think it would also be valuable to overclockers... anyways, there's no way I'd let this go for less than $200... might take awhile to get but I've got the time.

Retail, old, extreme intel's are still going for hefty sums and there are much cheaper CPUs' that perform better or equal at stock speeds.

Anyways, guess I'll try to put this up for sale at a $200 minimum and see how it does.

Good luck with that. I know that I wouldn't pay for it at that price, but I know more than the average joe. If you get near that price than more power to ya!

I would say between $120-140 would be a fair price.

dont bother with that POS
with the price of a used 2900xt, u can get a brand new 3850/3870/9800GT

or better just, just wait for the 4850 thats ganna be released in several weeks

Just because they are listed at high prices doesn't mean people are actually lining up to pay those prices.

Anywate, good luck finding a sucker.

Remember CPU's are different. Sometimes an aging cpu is still the best cpu that certain mobo's/chipsets can use, so demand stays up there. Also, the unlocked multipliers of Intel's extremes are quite desireable for overclockers.

Good luck.

Lol $200? i can get a 8800 GTS G92 lower than that (after rebate) lol.
Things lose value over time get over it , I'm not gonna start selling my A64 3000+ for a small fortune just be cause it was the shiznit in ancient times.

The 2900XT is not a good overclocker. (none of AMD/ATIs XT cards are overclockers, they are already near the max of the chip/core.) The 2900pro was a good overclocker, as they could usually get near the speeds of the XT, and they were cheaper to.

Again, good luck finding the uninformed sucker who is going to spend that amount. I would not spend $200 for that card, new or used. I'm guessing you want $200 so that you can get an 8800GTS. Why should I pay you that much if I can just get the better performing GTS myself?

If u wanna stay ati, u could hold on to the card until the 4870 comes out, and in the meantime just experiment with oc'ing it. You could get up to 15% more performance out of the card that way. Would make an intzeresting little diversion for the next 5 weeks or so.

let's call this what it is: Some guy trolling the forums for a buyer.

why else would you ask what it's worth, and then proceed to tell us what it's worth?

nobody here is going to pay for that card. it's old and ineffecient.

yeah, troll indeed. i got my evga 8800gt brand new with lifetime warranty for $180. it replaced a nice xfx 7950gt with silent cooling that i paid $225 for 2 years ago. based on this guy's 2900xt, anyone want my 7950gt for $999.99? it's rare now, but wait, there's more! I'll even throw in my aiw 9600pro if you use the buy it now option.
May 16, 2008 3:29:45 PM

I have a ATI 9800pro (AIW) for sale too. Paid $525 for it. I'll give you guys a deal and let it go for $300. It's a real deal! Almost half the price I paid for it new!

I recently bought a 2900 Pro on ebay for roughly 130$ including shipping. It's easy to get it to XT speed and is worth it's money. I wouldn't have paid 131$ for it though.
