    I bought a couple GFX (2 of them to be exact) and the guy told me they were 8800GT's, but i cant get the stupid things to work! I bought it from a guy off of Craigslist some browsing around let me to this.

    he somehow sold me a friggin 9600GT? G94, no joke i have the GPU-Z to Prove it.

    note: Just look at the GPU-Z with a side comparison of a Website's GPU-Z as you can see they are nearly Identical, mine is the 10DE-0621, and hosts 256MB whereas the websites is the the 512mb version of the 9600GT


    Not only that but i have 2 right now in SLI. how the hell did this guy obtain a friggin 9600's???????

    Update:Heres some more Proof i took this while the computer loads, it comes before the BIO's screen, ill try to take a better pic but as i circle you can make out it says G94

    CARDS ARE LEGIT, NOT STOLEN PROPERITY!

    The seller is apparently a journalist in Stocklin who recieves such things as to how and why he sold them to me ill ask him sometime but until them i bought them, fair and legit, and they are mine to keep or sell, i HOLD NO NDA RIGHT TO NVIDIA on these pair of 9600GT's

    UPDATE TO ALL:


    CARDS HAVE BEEN SOLD AND BOTH ARE NO LONGER IN MY POSSESSION.

    To whom, well i guess you find out soon lol!

    EDIT:SOMEONE IS TRYING TO PASS OF MY CARDS AS HIS OWN(Possibly) there is no way that is me, my Ebay is Marine187 and i removed the items from Ebay yesterday, WHOEVER this is IT IS NOT ME. Most likely a con or scam trying to get in on all the Hype i somewhat generated.

    You will see the 9600GTs soon but they wont be mine they will be from a respected tech site who plans on benchmarking and testing them.

    he accidentally posted the url twice...

    btw, use the macro's mode when taking pics, it helps focus up close shots.

    Any who, 9600gt 256mb < 8800gt 256mb...so you got ripped.

    Even if they do register as 9600's, I bet somebody just flashed a bios on it, and changed the model# string.

    Yea, i was googling for a solution because i couldnt get the Nvida Drivers 169.28 beta ones to work with these cards and found that link with the SAME GPU-Z on it, well not exactly but as you can see from my GPU-Z it is BIOS 64.94..etc and if you look at the EXPview its the same, as well as the 10DE-0621(the 622 indicated its the 512mb verison whereas i got a hold of the 256mb verison)

    doesnt hurt anything you just get a vga bios mod program for example ati's is RaBIT though im not sure rabit supports boot screen mods nibitor does...but it might not work with ati cards...at anyrate its really easy in my case i check a box to enable it and theirs a text box next to that that lets me edit the boot display i type whatever i want and tehn i save the bios flash it to my card and right b4 the system bios post(ram cpu speed etc) i get a black screen with white words that say "Solaris17 G84 mod copywrite 2007"
