    I have the opportunity to purchase a pair of GTX670 cards, one being a PNY brand, and the other being a Galaxy brand. What do you think each card is worth selling them here on TPU?

    Did you try searching the SOLD section for past threads that had them that sold? That is what I would do...

    I did, first result was from before the GTX700/R9 launch, which would obviously affect the cost of the 670.

    Depending on demand, Newegg price -15% or so to start out, shipped.

    Well I just heard from the guy selling them. Meeting up with him tomorrow afternoon to check them out. This is potentially a very awesome deal for me.

    At my site, I see them going for around $200. Give or take $10-20.

    Oh and for posterity... again... COCAINE! (please bring back that avatar!)

    I'm curious to know what kind of price you're talking about.

    As a word of caution, a friend of mine bought a, can't remember what now, something-or-other nvidia dual-GPU (dual PCB) card for cheap. He said it was crashing on him. I took a look at it. First problem, loaded with dust. Second problem, the previous owner smudged off a handful of resistors off the back of the card. I have no idea how, but the section of missing resistors is about the size of a thumb. It was the master card PCB that had the resistors ripped off, but the PCI-e bridge was still functional, so the secondary card was still able to drive a display.

    Moral of the story, make sure to test it.

    Edit: I think it was a 9800 GX2.

    I sold mine a few weeks ago for 200. And that was an EVGA Brand card too.

    Price? I'll tell you that after I buy them.

    As for the word of caution, while I greatly appreciate your concern, this is far from my first time buying used hardware. I'll have the opportunity to fully test the cards before buying. The owner says they are still installed in his computer and that he is willing to run any benchmark program or game (that he owns of course) to show they are in proper running condition.

    Ah. Not until they're yours, eh? Fair enough.

    I wasn't trying to question your knowledge of buying used hardware, I meant more the person you were buying them from. :p

    I was considering getting a second GTX670 so was shopping around--I wouldn't pay more than $200 for one.

    I'll trade my GTX670 for two passively cooled single slot AMD R9 290X cards with a Seasonic fanless 1000w PSU!!!

    Well the owner of the cards never responded to my text last night. I'm going to try again tonight. I know he gets off work around 4-4:30 pm, so that's when I'll try. I sure hope he doesn't decide not to sell them. $260 for two GTX670 cards is a awesome deal.

    I just sent him this text-

    I'll try to call him one more time after 4:30 pm est today, and if he doesn't respond, oh well. I'll just figure he realized the actual value of the cards and had second thoughts. He did tell me he was not pressed to sell them.
