How much is worth?

I have here one Blizzard 1260 w/ 32Mb that i want to sell.

How much you think is worth?

I've been watching some auctions on eBay and they usually end +$400.

Because I wanted to avoid eBay on this one and try to sell it on Amiga forums i would like your opinion on this one.

Thanks in advance

I have been watching many auctions too in the last years and most 160 Mhz BlizzardPPC cards (which are much faster) usually end at 200 USD. Last Sunday one got sold on Ebay UK for 85 GBP (no, not to me ) ...

So Amigaz got extremely lucky !! These things happen now and then but are not common at all. If that would be the normal price then every owner of a 1260 would sell his card and buy a "cheaper" Blizzzard 240 Mhz PPC with 060

Edit : Paul sells a complete tower with Blizzard PPC and Mediator + pci cards for 475 USD ...

Bad title! Misses the 10.000$ word " Amiga "

So these $400+ is not constant then?

I may be lucky or not..

I think 225 USD or 170 euro or 115 GBP is a more realistic price, but on the other hand there is always the possibility that someone with a great cash flow wants to spend lots more to it than the others, and that may be your lucky shot just like Amigaz had !! You can try to list it for a fixed price, high enough of course, and if it does get sold then lucky you If it doesn´t then ask a lower price, not much lower of course, and try again Sometimes this really works !! But make sure you give enough information and especially the shipping costs to every place on the planet and not just the local natives

Additional tip : if you plan to put it on Ebay like most people do, get a PayPal account and make sure you also ask the necessary information about your bank account, IBAN and BIC code so that other European people can pay by international bank transfer ... not everybody seems to have a PayPal account ... but if you do then it makes a lot of things a lot easier and faster. It does cost a bit but it´s worth having it
Potential buyers like to know exactly how much they are gonna spend at an object, how much the price, how much the shipping costs, how much the extra costs that some people ask for PayPal, how you are gonna send it to avoid custom taxes in foreign countries ... also try to make your auction in more than just one language, use an online translation machine to do the translation for you, except Spanish I guess
