Thats a pretty good price.

You really shouldn't need much more than that for some time to come.

I agree with Aspire. Since the brand is EVGA, that is a humongous deal! If you take up his offer on that, you can wait to see how the new cards run, and wait for price drops. Then in the future if you feel you need more power for the newer games, you can upgrade then and save some money.

Plus if he still has the original receipt and it hasn't been very long, it could still meet the step-up requirements... but if he is selling it, it's probably getting close to the end of the 90 day period.
