Default Decent price for video card?

Someone wants to sell me a 7800GTX from XFX (transferable warrenties) for 120 dollars.

I am unsure which version of the 7800GTX it is, but is this a good deal?

Holy crap lol.

Is that how much that XFX goes for? 500+

I cant find any XFX on newegg, but all the 7800GTX they sell are open box, and go for like 300 dollars lol.

I take it I should buy it?

Actually they're both on par with each other. I would go for a 7900GS, and overclock it. They're really cheap now.

Nosboost300 is right though. Make a profit, off it.
