    Hi. I'm looking to increase a little my ppd production, so i take a chance and ask the TPU community for a old geforce gpu. I already own a universal water block which fit any card from 8800 gt/gts to gtx 260/275/285. I prefer the highest possible core number, as it'll do more ppd, so my guess would be a gtx 260 of some sort. I'll pay up to 60-70$ before shipping for the card, and live in quebec city, canada. I fold under the 111frodon nick for the tpu folding@home team if you wanna verify my stats. Thanks for your time and let me know what you've got!

    Too bad you're in Canada. Shipping there is relatively expensive.
    However, if you're interested, I have 3 9600 gso's. 1 is 768mb GDDR3(evga), the other two are Asus 384mb GDDR3.

    Right omega. That's why i would prefer something a little more powerful. I'll keep your offer in mind tough. If i don't receive other offers, then we'll work something out. Thanks for the reply!

    Screw all this "too bad your in Canada" talk. I've got 10 for shipping. Must have reputable heatware and confirm details.

    To RAMIREZ: Those would 8800gts be great. In fact, i would pay premium price for these two. Is it really that much more paperwork to ship to the other side of the continent? As far as i'm concern, taking something from L.A. to me is well worth 20-30$ of shipping. PM me what you think.

    Not that I do not support folding. Big ups to the people that do. However, this is business. The paperwork to ship international is nothing as I have done business with people in Canada before. I just choose not to, do to shipping cost and cost are expensive. Now if the buyer agrees to cover shipping expenses I dont mind talking some business. Sounds like Mlee wants to get first dibs so batter up. If he or she cant help you shoot me a PM.

    Again, thanks to everyone for the quick response!
