Default Price check on X1950 PRO XGE

Not sure if this is the right forum, but i didnt want to clutter the for sale page...
i'm getting my VisonTek x1950 pro back on an RMA so its basically brand new (or referbed, dont know yet). How much is it worth?

They sell new for around $150, if you act fast, you could probably sell it for around $75-$100, if you found someone desperately needing an AGP card, and don't want to upgrade their entire computer.

No, they dont.

The x1950 is extremely old.....most you could get would be about $40 or $50.

I just went off of this, I knew they were old, on a dead bus, which is what surprised me when I saw the prices for them. :

You can get a 9600gt for about 60-70 bucks which will significantly outperform it. $40-$50 tops.

the only way you could sell that bad boy is if somebody is really strapped for cash and is using AGP. It's a quality card for sure, but with technology moving so fast these days that card has just been left on the side of the road crying it's poor eyes out.

Jack it up on FleaBay. Set a minimum of $50 and list it for a week. You might get lucky.
