its a last gen card that isnt 100%..
I wouldnt waste a penny
perhaps but i already own a HD6950 that's been modded. A second one cheap would put me in a decent situation graphically. Since that is an older revision reference design card with dual bios, i could unlock it and have 2 similar cards in crossfire.
There is no way in hell i'll pay over the odds. It just seems odd that the guy hasn't rma'd it.
It leaves me thinking 2 things. Either is dead and he knows it.
Or he's a retard. The spelling mistakes in the listing also help with this assumption.
I may ask him a question regarding the listing.
"when the card/system crashes does the gpu fan spin up to full speed and make a lot of noise?"
It's a fairly innocent question but if it does then it sets my mind at ease as the card is suffering from power loss and not a hardware crash. A hardware crash would black screen to a dead system with a total shutdown, Powerless goes into safe gpu cool down.
Also i believe asus offer 3 year warranty on GPU's. A few minutes on the phone with them i could get an rma. It'd be pretty easy to say i got the card for my birthday from my grandmother who recently passed away so i have no access to a receipt. (no shame).
