Default just missed out on a GTX285 for $160 USD...

I saw the post on craigslist, called and it was already gone, this was at 7pm, he posted the ad around 6:30pm, I checked my email and had a message from him at 4pm, fffuuugggggggggg, I should've checked my email earlier, how did he have my email you ask...? he emailed me because I responded to his first GTX285 ad a week ago when he was selling it for $320, he told me in today's 4pm email that the price was now $160, he hadn't been able to sell it yet and just needed some bill money fast...

I am so pissed at myself...

Oh man! I hate when that happens! I've missed so many good deals in my short span of life.

Wow. That's a pretty hefty deal. But I won't rub it in. Ehh. There will be another. Or you could just buy a new one.

a few months back a guy was selling a 4870x2 for $175 USD, this area seems like a hotbed of great craigslist deals...

Worship picked one of those up for about 60 USD. One broke in CF I guess, so the guy thought they both broke. He sold them both for 60 USD each if I remember correctly.

Correction, it was 60 Euros.
