    I'll post some pics later. I've got a BFG 8800GT OC 512 that I'm really wasting, since I'm not gaming very much. It runs stable at 720/1000. I can get it to 740 if I drop the memory to 980. It has not been bios volt modded yet, he he he...I've replaced the thermal goop/pads with AS MX-1. Excellent card, but someone else would get better use out of it. I'll trade it for a 3850 and some cash. Make me an offer guys.

    Your gonna laugh but try this 49.00

    hey Paul I put this in my father inlaws computer and was messing around with it in mine if you turn a few things down it will play just about anything out . I know I tried it . I'm selling my GTS and putting it towards a faster hardrive and a new Quad. I pay a few games but nothing crazy.

    http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16814122023 It is a really cool little card. not a hard core gamers card but as fast as a x1900xt 256 or near so.

    here is a customer review I agree with hes right it will plays these games Pros:


    Wanted a decent 8500 card for gaming . This card plays all the new games COD 4, Bioshock, Gears of War, on normal + settings @ (1280x1024) 720p. Plays Kane and Lynch on high. I got it when they had the rebate also.

    Cons: none so far

    Other Thoughts: XP pro, running direct X 9c. 3.4 805d, 4g ddr2 667. I have lots of case cooling.

    LOL. I might buy this and just put it in another rig I'm building for my kids. I might not need the power of the 8800GT, but I need at least a 3850 for when I do decide to try new games and want some eye candy.

    Mods, could you change the title to "...3850 or 2900XT and cash"?

    I might be interested in trading my eVGA 8800 GTS 320 MB unless you have your heart set on a 3850.

    be advised that 2900Pro is the 256-bit memory bus version as opposed to the original ones with the XT's 512-bit, not saying it's a deal breaker or anything but just pointing it out

    paul what kind of deal could we work out with the following?:
    My:
    - SE W580i Brand New
    - HIS ICEQ3 HD3850 512MB that's literally barely ever been used, I've gamed on it all of one hour, retail package and everything
    Your:
    - 8800GT
    - Cash

    LMK what you think :)

    Tempting Nate, but I'm trying to get some cash for some other stuff, and I love that phone, but I really don't need it right now. I like that 3850 though. The ICEQ coolers are sweet.
