Only problem I can see is that a 560 Ti isn't worth $250 new.

Whatever. I'll auction it on eBay and people will buy it anyway.

People go to Ebay for two reasons. Either to get rare stuff that's hard to find in person, or to get normal stuff cheaper than they would in stores.
I don't think your videocard falls under the first category.

Check the completed listings on eBay. From the looks of it, you probably won't sell it, and if you do, it'll be for somewhere around $200.

Which isn't that bad, mind you. And you can always cheat a bit and get the shipping costs a bit higher than they really need to be.

True, but it looks like maybe one in ten actually sell at that price.

If you keep your second card and your motherboard has 2 PCI-e slots, then you can dual SLI those suckers. :)

Just make sure beforehand that both can fit into your computer.

I know that, and I do not plan to use SLI. From what I have heard it can be buggy and unreliable, and not even worth the effort. Furthermore, as far as I am aware, the motherboard I have selected is incompatible with SLI. As such, I won't be crossfiring my graphics cards.

And you'd be ~200 dollars short.
