I know new they are around $580 a pair assembled.
I actually have a set of used vortecs for sale, but they are ported and modified for .550" lift. Kinda pointless for you to give me big bucks for heads that are overkill.

I have bought used Vortec heads for $300 a pair and got lucky. I also bought some for $350 and they needed a $250 valve job before using and it killed the deal. I recently lucked on a complete vortec motor for $50 that I don't think had 10k on it before it spun a rod bearing. Buying used is always a crap shoot, and like you said, they're only $580 new.
