if one were to procure a brand new in the box and unsealed one, would it be a major blunder to unseal it to verify the contents?
Could be seen both ways.
1) Could be unworking or a fake.
2) Unopened real thing has much greater value.

Me personally, I would probably not open it.

Club3D was one of the brands that I think had actual retail versions out. I remember reading a non handpicked review about that but I can't remember where.

I have some updates, I received the Volari Duo V8, and also purchased an ES GeForce FX 5800 Ultra with the Green Translucent Shroud...

I really don't doubt that the volari is in there and will eventually get it x-rayed, but won't open the shrink wrap. I received total verification and confirmation on reputation of the source from Kyle Bennett owner of [H]ard|OCP. It would be so publicly known that i got ripped off if so.

picked up this seemingly close to prototype with a bodge wire board ...



also can't recall if i shared this, but took a gamble and booted up the Volari with the bulging caps... the sealed one is still sealed:

what's your opinion, would you ever collect such a beast?
Personally, no. I focus on usable hardware. A strange card to clutter the shelf is neat, but I much prefer one I can plug in and play with.

The only reason I might consider something like that is if the price is extremely agreeable.

hey everyone, i would like people to list any and all concept/unreleased/ or just rare gpus

Company | AIB | Graphics Card | Actual Card | Release NVIDIA | ASUS | V9999 Gamer Edition | GeForce 6800 AGP |
That's not a rare GPU, in fact it was probably one of the most common 6800 cards ASUS sold, including myself I know at least five people who had one.
