Used 7970 vs 580

He's listing it in an entire system with an i7 920 for $400. I was going to ask if he's willing to just sell the GPU to me.

Alright, if he sells it to you, around $100 is a good price, but people are still selling them on eBay for $150 somehow. $120 would still be an okay deal.

I've been browsing the used market and came across a used HD 7970 and GTX 580 and was wondering a couple of things:

 

Which one is the better buy? They're both listed for the same price, that price being whatever I ask for. Which is another question I have, what are these cards worth right now and what price should I suggest?

Should I even buy a used GPU?

I currently have an HD7790.

7970 is more comparable to GTX 680, it is quite a bit better than the GTX 580.

What is the price?

The 7970 performs between the GTX 770 and 780, it's definitely more powerful than the 580 and 680.
