    Lol Jaton... they think they're cool cause they pack thier 8400gs with 2 dvi cables that split from one connection into two... something worth maybe $10

    It would be cheaper to just buy two cards.

    First off, it's Jaton, they're always overpriced. Second they think they can rape you because they shipped two DVI cables with it that split into two so you can hook 4 monitors up at the same time... something you could do with two of these:

    Ah well. No use arguing about it anyway, bottom line is that it's a con job to charge that much for an 8400gs (or 6200), 2 gpus on one card or not :nutkick:

    Jaton must smoke pot how do they make any money for $189 you can easily get a great deal on new fast cards. but of course i guess if your MB can only use that type of connector and you want to be able to play some games then you got to buy that crap

    Really it's because it's pci and not agp or pci-e Really!!! some people really can't be convinced it's time to buy a new pc-even when you can get a better 1 for less than an upgrade

    I would rather just build a new computer for $400-$600 instead of buying a POS graphics card for $200. I'd rather spend that $200 on a 4890 or something to use in said build.

    Even if that card was good, i woudlnt buy it just because it looks like shit.

    We should toss all shitty looking cards (and old legacy stuff in general) into the black hole of the Internets.
