    AS the title says, have you recently upgraed your GPU and now find yourself in the horrible situation where you have a 560 / 580 thats surpus to requirements.

    It's never nice being in this position, however I feel that I could certainly help you out of a tight spot. :D

    Seglespaan, I don't know if you are aware bit-tech has a marketplace for things like this. Although you do need to make a certain amount of posts to access it (I believe it is 75?). Hang in there and you'll be able to have a look :)

    I did the reverse, I downgraded a GPU from an HIS Radeon 5850 (1GB, DDR5) to a lesser GPU as I did not need the HIS 5850 performance. I think that according to "tomshardware" the Radeon 5850 is classed as the same level of card as a GTX 560, or rather, thats what their Dec-11 table shows?

    It's back in the original box with CD, manual, cables ready to go onto eBay. I have found that they bring bigger money on eBay especially if you can do a sneakey "private" with no fees.

    Yes the marketplace is off limits to users with fewer than 75 posts, and trading with such users is strongly discouraged.

    @OP if you're looking for a 560Ti your best bet at the moment is ebay. :thumb:
