Default Good deal or not

I just won on a action for the GeForce FX 5200 256mb PCI video card but my question is that is this a good deal that I got it for $32 with shipping? Or is this too expensive for this type of card?

I haven't paid for it yet but I just wanted to make sure that this is a good deal. This is a used video card that works perfectly fine the seller says.

You saved about 6-10 bucks. Not a huge deal, but still a savings.

Currently newegg has one on sale forf 30 + 6 shipping after the mail in rebate.

Oh, I just discovered this, but newegg does PayPal

I would pay the few extra dollars for a New card.

NewEgg has done PayPal for quite some time now

I actualy did won on another auction but didn't pay for it yet since I want to check on you guys but I did also win the same GeForce FX 5200 video card but only with 128mb for $19.50. Is this a better deal I got for this type of card?
