    Hi All

    First post on this forum. I'm just wondering where can I sell my old radeon 6990, 7990 and Geforce 980TI. They still work but I didn't really want to give it away in them E-waste drop offs. Any idea who may want these or which shop I can sell them to?

    Edit: Not sure if this has been posted before, I tried to look for a similar thread. Apologies if this has been posted before.

    Sell them here? Ebay? Gumtree? Assuming they work fine.

    You're only a new member, so you're going to need to stick around a few months and participate in the forums before you can sell them here. Otherwise, as Matt said, Ebay/Gumtree or even Facebook Marketplace.

    only the 980ti will be worth anything (not much though).

    you can get better than 6990/7990 performance for <$100 these days.

    I tossed my 6990 with a waterblock years ago.

    And the driver support is so abysmal that they barely perform better than their single-GPU equivalent. Sometimes even worse.

    Plenty of folks in the retro forums are interested in these cards to match older hardware.

    Wait your 90 days, then sell them in the retro forums trading area. They'll be put to good use by willing buyers, and not end up in landfill.
