    it's just a plain 6800 so it should have 12pixel pipelines and 256-bit memory.

    scroll down to 6800 chipset table, it will show you the different versions.

    I have one MSI 6800GT for sale , with the 5NV silencer on it .
    But it will cost, no less than 150 EUR ... additionally the shipping cost , about 20EUR.

    you could almost buy a 4890 with that!

    170euro = $230usd

    I hope kiriakost was joking when he said 150 euros...... even asking 100 is still overpriced for a card that old.

    Unless you are getting it for under $40, dont do it. Ive got an x1300 for on par performance, that I could get to you for $35, or an x800 with aftermarket cooling for $40.
    EDIT: In fact, just looking at the benchmarks, the x800PRO even beats the 6800 ultra pretty good.

    Also, i think he meant 15 euro, with shipping 20 euro. i hope.
    didnt realize you were in europe, shipping is a bit more expensive there.

    Criticism over price, its not welcome , on a free market .

    Its a perfect card with special cooler , that i spend 400EUR for it ... simple as that.
    Never kept OCed , other than simple testing.
    Still have the box of it , and what ever comes with it.

    My PS2 is in mint condition and my friend has a box off one, should I sell that for €200 too? I'd be taking a loss since it was like €500 new...

    We are trying to help you. You will not sell that card at that price.
     
  16. kyle2020 Guest

    Just because you paid, lets say, £300 for something 3 years ago and its still mint doesnt mean its worth atleast £250 now, the market changes, cheaper, more powerful items get released, thus the value of old items gets reduced to next to nothing.

    A 6 series nvidia card is in no way, shape or form worth 170EUR. You can get 9 / 2 series nvidia cards cheaper than that - see where im coming from?

    Free market people ... thats my price , i do not care for less , simple as that .

    No one forced me to spent the 400 EUR and getting it .
    I was need a fast and compatible card , and got the best and most expensive 6800 GT out there .

    If some needs it , its ok , if not its ok too , and keep the pills too.

    Isn't the 6800 slower than a 7600GT?

    Well no offence, but either you're going to have to find someone who has no idea what they are doing, or you're going to hold on to that forever...

    No, the market sets the prices. It's about the willingness to pay for a product. If nobody is willing to pay the price asked for a product then it's overvalued.
