    Sold to Zenlaserman

    I recently switched to a 5850 so I would like to sell this now. I bought this card from ShadowFold last year. This card runs great and is only a few frames slower than my 5850. Despite what you may have heard about the heat and noise of these cards, I found that removing the fan shroud remedied the majority of this issue. I kept the fan shroud off and it ran considerably cooler and the fan speed didn't jump as high as it did with it on. The card will come in the original box with all of the original accessories included. I would like to sell this for $175 shipped. I can do $165 shipped if you just want to buy the card without the box or accessories since I'll probably be able to use a smaller box. As far as payment options are concerned, I will prefer non-CC Paypal or a USPS money order. My heatware is under Shadowdust. I am willing to consider trades though I don't have anything I need at the moment. Thanks for looking!

    Bump. Is my price unreasonable or is there lack of interest since it is last generation?

    this is a great card by far, I replaced mine with a 5850 and the 4850x2 2gb is barely faster then the 5850 but it is faster. at least in 3dmark it was and a few games. Only reason I replaced mine was for dx11.

    Yeah, that was partially the reason I switched to the 5850 as well. As far as performance goes, they seem to trade blows at stock speed. The 5850 definitely seems faster at overclocked speeds though.

    Well, fortunately, there was some interest tonight and the card is now pending payment to zenlaserman. :D
