I personally like to sell my stuff, family or otherwise. I always look up my system/component or an equivalently performing system/component (if the parts I'm selling are older) and beat the lowest price by a fair margin. In the end, the second owner gets a deal that they can't pass up and I get a subsidy for my new purchase.

Can't argue that, but you're also talking about almost
double the price of a 7770.
