You would think that somthing for my computer, that I purchased nearly 2 years ago, would loose it's market value - right? Wrong.
I purchased a Asylum GeForce 4 TI-4200 AGP video card with 128 MB onboard RAM during a 2002 Thanksgiving sale at Best Buy (Located on Barry Road near US-169). The price I paid for this video card when purchased was roughly $90.
I was searching for a sutible upgrade for my video card last week on Froogle ( http://www.froogle.com ), and I kept finding these $400 to $800 video cards (i.e. the ATI Raedon 9800 / X800, and the GeForce 6800 Ultra / GT.) At first, I thought these prices were erronous, however, I then had the wild idea of finding how much my current GeForce 4 TI-4200 would sell for.
I found one seller selling the same video card for $79 bucks. (Lost $10 value since I bought it,) however, I found another video card (Non-Asylum) for $150. Same card, just not manufactured by a third-party. I found some more of these non third-party manufactured cards, with prices ranging from $129 to $168.
I'm starting to consider the possibility of selling it on eBay for around $110, since it is working as it was when I bought it.
