    Well, want to try my hand at a pair of 295's. Funny how I said I would never touch a dual Nvidia card again after their POS 7950GX2 and 9800GX2. NV finally learned their lesson Me thinks. Well, done bashing Nvidia, for now anyway. Mine are 1285 models so they are the original rev. before the cheaper part model.

    I would prefer Co-Ops, and that they be registered as mine are registered. Also must be willing to help with RMA's as I will do the same.

    If I sell these I want $260 shipped each. Would prefer to sell them all at once. I will sell individually but need all three confirmed sold before proceeding. BTW, I have the boxes, manuals, cables, etc. Like new. Purchased in May, 09.

    With my 920 @ 4.0Ghz these cards break 35,xxx in Vantage stock clock. Bump up to SSC/FTW speeds(702 core mode, which is one card's default speed btw, I got a bonus on my RMAl) and I hit 36,2xx.

    All Sold!

    And no I do not want a crappy 9800GX2. You know who you are.....
    :wtf:

    Well, seems to be a theme for me lately. With a little girl on the way the wife has put her foot down. As long as it doesn't come out of our checking I can do what ever I want...


    So, since I can't afford a second Velociraptor, looking to trade it for 2/3 Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB's plus $ or something else I might need. I already have a 640 Black so kind of wanting some more of those. Just interseted in the Caviar Blacks. Would also prefer something newer as my Velociraptor was purchased new in Feb. this year.
    SOLD!

    On to the pics....

    No,not you guys. something from a while back. And yes I still believe they sucked. I had both and regretted having both. 9800GX2 looked horrible over HDMI, sucked at high resolutions with settings turned up( My two old 8800 Ultra's walked all over it), steady framerate was iffy,etc..... They might be ok for folding but from a gaming standpoint they were a rush for the crown card.

    As for folding I would do it if it wasn't for the power bill. Mine is already high just from a gaming standpoint. I have much respect for those that do though.
