What to do with my old video card?

I've got a bit of a dilemma here. I have an XFX nvidia 8800 GT and its just old enough to be a bit outdated but not quite old enough to be totally obsolete, broken down, or useless. I want to get an upgrade but I don't want to just leave the old video card sitting on my desk forever. What do you guys do with old pieces of hardware that aren't old enough to just be disposed of?

Sell it. You won't get anywhere near what you paid for it but what you do can get go towards your upgrade.

They sit in my drawer forever, I am afraid, or almost anyway. Eventually, I get enough parts to put a whole computer together that can then be given to a church, Goodwill, or a Salvation Army. Just don't throw it in the trash as they are bad for the environment.
