What to do with an old GPU.

I've decided to upgrade my current GTS 450 to a GTX 560, but haven't quite gotten enough money for the upgrade yet. Is there any way I could trade in my current GPU for the $100 I paid for it? Maybe at a store?

  1. You could sell it on ebay - of course, cheaper than you bought it for.
  2. looks like you will only get about $30-50 for it unless you get really lucky and find someone that dose not know any better.

    Beat me to it :p. Was just looking at prices on ebay.

    To OP. Never expect full price back :). If that were the case heck i'd trade my car in every year for a newer model ;).
  4. Craigslist is a good place to sell it as well. No fees, and often faster than eBay.
  5. I would use the old card for Folding@home. You could use it for physx though.
  6. Unless you have something against AMD, or theres a really good deal on a 560 somewhere consider the 7850 before you buy anything. A 1 gig model will run you around $180 and they're really the best card for your money out there right now.

    Seriously, would you pay full price (or the original price) for a used video card (or any other part for that matter) that is no longer under warranty?
