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.
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.
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?
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?
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.
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.
