I'd say it's about the equivilent of a x1600 or x1650... if it works properly, you can probably get $200 out of it.

Even though it's amoung the bottom-line of the FireGL series, those cards are designed more for workstation, 3D modeling, etc. Really solid cards, all the way around, and are known for delivering exceptional performance when it comes to gaming, etc.

I'd defi say keep it and see if it works, and how it stacks up against your current hardware.

i found a box full of p4's in the trash one time. every single one of them worked. i sold them for $45 each and made like $300.

our local colleges throw away their computer stuff when they upgrade. i dug through the trase for 4 hours one day and got 14 dell 17" LCDs, 9 HP laser printers, 35 dell desktops, a dell XPS laptop that had a cracked screen(that's all that was wrong) 100's of dell mice and keyboards(usb and PS2) and a brand new mini fridge! one of the guys that works there actually helped me load my truck!

i've found awesome thrown out hardware too.

I get 'dead' hardware a lot - whenever people buy rigs off me, i offer a discount (10% or so) for their old rig - i end up with a lot of ram, harddrives, and fans :D

2-3 systems later, i can build a new rig out of the parts... and make the money back.

I think asking $250 is a little much. Even on ebay the FireGL v5100 only goes for the $150 range.
