If I had about 8 x NVIDIA Quadro K2200 Graphics Cards for sale, still pretty much brand new as they were just taken out of the computers and replaced with better graphics cards, how much could I sell each one of them for? i.e what's a reasonable price to sell them at? Images below.

 

Thanks.

Brand new they are in the $900 range

But you can get them offshore for around NZD$700 delivered into NZ  .. $600 seems a bit much but good luck

But you just said they were $900 in NZ, and $700 delivered to NZ. $600 seems okay then as judging by the prices you said. These ones here are pretty much brand new if not brand new as they were literally taken out as soon as the computer got here to be replaced by a better graphics card.

However, if anybody wants one, I can do somewhere around $550 for one on here to compensate the success fees on Trade Me.

I think I got around 350 for my K2200 on trademe a year ago and was very happy with that. Basically I replaced mine with a GTX1070 which destroys it performance wise, and cost around 800.

A 1050 gives 1.5 times the performance of a K2200 in 3DMark and is sub $200 on PriceSpy. Given that, and the fact the market for Quadro/FirePro cards is so tiny, I'd say you should be pricing them around $100-150.

Hmm considering the RRP of them is still up in the 8-900s, I can drop it down to 400 for now and see what happens. Thanks for the feedback nonetheless. :-)

Hmm I wonder why they are priced into the $900s on PriceSpy!

 

$300 anybody? Shipping will be additional.

They are niche cards for cad and modelling. People buy then as part of modelling workstations, most of the money is spent to include the on site next business day warranty. Most consumers want frames per second rather than 10 bits per channel shading and pixel perfect wireframe rendering which these cards are good at.

Geforce 10 series cards do 10 bit per channel color providing you use Display Port connection (mine is setup this way). I've used both in workstations extensively for 3D production and there are no other advantages to quadros. A workstation's on site warranty has nothing to do with the quadro's cost - they are still priced high when purchased separately and there is no on-site warranty there.

 

They will be around for a while in some areas of CGI, but are falling out of favor in the pro 3D scene mainly because of the increasing popularity of GPU renderers like Redshift, Octane etc. Even industry standard CPU renderers are gradually introducing GPU accelerated features.
