I have the opportunity to buy a GTX 690 for $600 or would you sell it for a profit? I will be going to a 3 monitor setup (3 x 1080p). Gaming: BF3 iRacing Dirt 3 and others.

More about : buy

Is it used, that sounds like a decent deal. But I don't see the point in spending 600 on a graphics card. Even 300-400 is quiet a bit of money. You should be good for 3 monitors at 1080p.

I would probably sell it, but selling cards is tough in my opinion. You wouldn't get as much as retail for sure. Still probably make good decent money on it.

Assuming you can get those 2 sold for those prices and you really want the 690 then I would try it out. If you are looking to use it, its always an investment but if you don't really care for it, then sell it. Nothing better right now on the market. Oh and shipping when selling cards will kill you haha.

I can ship cheap or sell local. $300 for a gtx 690 is a steal.

The ones I looked at were close to 1k or more. I'm not sure what a card that costs that much does. I guess if you really worry about fps, statistics, and how much you can max to max games then it must be worth it. Because as more months go by they drop as something else is out.

a used graphics card usually sells for %80 to %90 of retail price on ebay (depending on condition) imo, go for it

Really depends on how long you've had it. My card that was not even a year old on Ebay went for $90-160 at the most.
