Are Radeon Sapphire R9 280x video cards old news?

I bought 3 of these 6 months agoish for about $400 a piece and after it being up on craigslist for a month nobody will even send me an email. Is asking $250 each too much?

I'd say so, you're asking close to retail. Even if they're "like new" a lot of people would prefer to pay the extra and buy new. Just my opinion of course. NCIX have the Sapphire version for $270.

I wouldn't pay $250 for a card I could buy for $290-300 new.

TC probably bought them when the prices were inflated to hell.

I'd say around 200 would be a more fair price.

I bought my 290x used for $275

Mining went great, until the new ASIC came out. Thanks for the feedback, i'll repost at $200 price point, see what happens.

Protip: No one is going to buy a used Radeon card and at, lol, 66% of it's MSRP.
