[FS/FT] Radeon 9500->9700 VF700Cu, 600watt SLI, P4 478+mobo+ram



Components are working 100%, except the NF7-S. Prices are USA dollars. Shipping from New Jersey, USA.
Within the US, shipping can probably be done for $5-8 via USPS for most items here.​

What I may accept for trades:
  • 1 Corded optical/laser mouse with a easy-to-click middle button, quiet clicking left/right buttons, and a non-tilting scroll wheel (Dell's cheap Logitech mice are nice)
  • 512MB sticks of DDR400 RAM CAS 2.5 or better.
  • Any AGP, DirectX 9 capable card with 2 monitor outputs, and passive heatsink.

Combo: The Pentium 4 & heatsink & motherboard & 768MB DDR266:
Sale: $37 + shipping
CPU: Pentium 4 1.7GHz
(Willamette core - 256KB L2 cache) socket 478, 100MHz FSB (400MHz).
  • Stock heatsink/fan that came with it is included

MOBO: MSI MS-6533G socket 478 motherboard
  • Onboard graphics VGA port. SiS is the company for gfx chip. Up to 64MB video RAM taken from system RAM
    AGP 8x available.
  • USB 1.1 ports (2 on back, has connection for front USB)
    100Mb/s Ethernet port.
    Serial & Parallel ports.
    2 speaker audio and Microphone input plugs.
  • 2 RAM slots - DDR333 is max speed.

    Only takes Pentium 4/Celeron CPUs with 400MHz FSB.

DDR1 RAM:
  • 256MB DDR266 cas2.5 stick
    512MB DDR266 cas2.5 stick

    Passed Memtest86 suite of tests with no errors


    512MB stick is the one with the white stickers on it.
GPU: Sapphire Atlantis ATI Radeon 9500
Sale: $50 + shipping
Trade: Ca$h + any AGP DirectX 9, passively cooled card with 2 monitor outputs
  • AGP 8x
    ATI R300 GPU 275MHz core, 128MB memory 270MHz (440) DDR
    4 ROPs, 4 pixel shaders, 4 vertex shaders, 128bit memory width. Pixel & Vertex shader v2.0b. DirectX 9.0
    1 DVI, 1 VGA, 1 S-Video (TV-out cable included)

    -Overclocking-
  • turns into a Radeon 9700 (8 ROPs, 8 pixel shaders, 4 vertex shaders, 256bit memory width) via installing softmod drivers, from TechPowerUp
    • It is a perfect softmod - no artifacts
  • Core speed overclocks to 385MHz stably.
    Memory does 285Mhz (570) overclock.

    -Modifications-
  • Has a Zalman VF700Cu cooler on it w/ Arctic Silver 3 paste applied
    Memory heatsinks w/ thermal tape.

    -History of Use-
    Overclocked only while playing 3D games
    Underclocked core to 200MHz while not playing 3D games


    The dust visible in the pictures has been carefully cleaned (via compressed air).
PSU: Ultra X-Finity 600Watt
Sale: $45 + shipping
  • Never used. I bought it new in a retail box. Tested to work.
  • SLI 6-pin connectors (two 6-pin PCI-E connectors)
    20- & 24-pin main motherboard connector
    4- & 8-pin CPU power connector
  • The power cables are silver and wrapped in a thick clear plastic (Ultra calls this "Flex Force" cabling)
  • It has some scratches; also white spray-paint mist on the side that faces out of a computer case (see 1st pic), which cloudies its original reflective paint job on that side. Simply cosmetic.


    There is a plastic ring, where the cables leave the casing (see 2nd pict) , that has snapped. It is cosmetic only.

MOBO: Abit NF7-S version 2, Socket A
Sale: $20 + shipping
Unsure if the memory slots are broken or it's my ram. Each stick in slot 1 passes Memtest86 tests, yet both together makes one of the stick consitantly fail.
Both sticks in the above MSI motherboard running at DDR333 speeds passes Memtest86. Running the sticks in the NF7-S at DDR333 still fails Memtest86 at the same memory location. I've tried very lose timings, lower FSB speed, and the one stick still fails when both sticks are in this motherboard.
I believe this has caused corruption to my Windows installation and hence got a new computer cause I got sick of troubleshooting the issue.

The northbridge has 2 of 4 screws and some hot-glue remnants. The top cover of the fan has been removed.

Everything else on this motherboard is OK. Running 1 stick of ram in this motherboard should be fine. And who knows, it may just be compatibility problem with my ram and the board.
  • Socket A, NForce2 Ultra chipset, supports 400MHz FSB
  • Three DDR400 RAM slots
  • Soundstorm onboard 5.1 audio, Dolby Digital passthrough via optical SPDIF on back
  • 100Mbps Ethernet
  • 2 USB 2.0 on back. Two headers for 4 more ports (like front USB). Headers for Firewire ports.
  • Supposedly a good overclocking board, although I never did this.
    Has the latest BIOS on it.
    I will help you find drivers for Windows XP, since NVIDIA has shafted NForce2 users for quite awhile now (I have a collection saved that I can burn to a CD).

old computer: Compaq AMD K6-2 450MHz or 500MHz
Sale: $7 + shipping
  • 128MB (2x 64MB) of PC100 or PC133 (I don't know what speed)
  • Two USB 1.1 ports on the back
  • Onboard VGA
  • Ethernet PCI card (It may be 100Mbps, I don't know)
  • Motherboard BIOS has been flashed to the latest release (It's a Gigabyte motherboard)

    It is a decent looking case, and very compact (ie difficult to install stuff into yet inconspicuous). The thing works if you provide a harddrive and CD-ROM.

    Consider the shipping costs of this item - it's fairly large and heavy.

    I found the plastic insert for the 5.25" bay, after taking the pictures, so it is only missing the one insert where the CD-ROM would go rather than 2 as the pictures show.
    I can provide a floppy drive for you as well to fill the 3.5" hole in the case.
SOUNDCARD: Creative Audigy Platinum
Sale: $35 + shipping

  • Includes:
    • PCI Audigy (the first Audigy) sound card. 5.1 channels. Quality SNR & plugs compared to onboard sound.
    • 5.25" bay with a goody of connections
    • Remote control
    • the cables required to use all the connections (firewire cable, MIDI cables, audio cable, IDE-ish cable to connect the PCI card to the 5.25" bay)
    • installation/driver CD and some lite-versions of video/audio editing software CDs included
    Everything is in perfect condition.
A 3rd party review (couldn't find a manufacturer link)
