Well here it is. Its been a rough month basement flooded lost the lycosa copperhead sub all my spare stuff one of my GX2's died Just got my rig running after 5 months on the laptop only for all this to happen 2 days later. So now im bored. What we have here is my operational 9800GX2 EVGA.

Im looking for a straight trade on this one for something of equal performance. why? because im bored with my system. Ill be trading my EVGA X50 and I7 C0 later but i dont feel like tearing down atm. I AM NOT SELLING THIS TRADE ONLY if i sell it I wont have a card so dont PM me about selling it. Im not looking for cash deals just a straight trade and im hoping their is someone here that is as bored with their rig as me. Heatware in sig dont hesitate to PM let me know what you have :) and thanks for looking sorry about pics im not using the review cam

ALSO if it comes up dont give me that micro stutter BS this isnt 2008 the cards run great

Now that the straight forward part is over if you like flashy FS threads in the B/S/T section let me elaborate.

This card is super wtf uber 1337 it weighs like 3lbs and looks mad cool in your window panel. It will be the talk of all your friends and your GF will love you for it. its got cool red stickers and flashy sticker print. think of the coolest song you know and this card represents that. If your younger its like a charizard
with more attitude. It has wicked sweet green LEd's and they even turn red if your psu is teh suxorz. it lols at physx and 3dmark. if your a folder it eats PPd's and demands kittehs as a snack. if your a gamer its uber sweet bandwidth hax it plays grid majong and even crysis if your ready to cop out and turn invisible and pwn some n00bz. its internal SLI if your thinking of upgrading your dell with 1 pci-e slot. and it even supports the 2.0 spec if higher numbers is better for you. so the only question that can be asked at this point doesnt even come from me but straight from the GX2's mouth CAN YOU HANDLE THIS CARD?








TRADED to stinger608

thanks for the responses and looks :)

Can you give us a hint as to what you consider an equal performing card?

Would it be exeptional to trade my GTX 260 core 192 that got me in 20th place in 3dmark06 for GTX 260's on hwbot.org :)

im thinking GTX280 as the GX2 can compete fairly well with it they trade blows pretty equally even at the higher resolutions as for ATI im actually not sure iv been out of that game for years but um 5850 5830?

I would say the card has more in common with a 4870 and no where close to a 5850.

ok but this isnt a crap fest im sorry i dont mean to be rude but i spacifically stated that i was unsure about ATI and honestly im probably just going to get frustrated if people come in here and tell me

A. how old it is
B. that it sucks
C. micro stutter (go get new drivers and stop using ones from 08)

To be clear i dont bench since iv gone i7 quad sli i ran enough benches to count on one hand my GX2 plays games fine with everything maxxed AA and AF im not looking for monitary value i know i will loose im not stupid just bored im hoping someone can understand its performance aspect and just talk to me.

This card doesn't happen to have a HDMI output on it, does it? :)
yes it does sir :) and some audio output bs that i never got around to since it needs a 2 pin fan looking wire that i just dont have and i got a xonar anyway so i never really bothered

Hey Solaris,

I think you are on track with the ATI cards. I would believe it to kick butt against a 4870, and maybe not quite in the 5850 league, but probably around the 5770 area at least man :)

Good luck bro with finding a good trade!

Oh, and a bump LOLOL

My PNY GX2 is a solid card......easily faster than any of y 4870's and a pleasure to use.


I want this but the only thing I have at the minute is a 9800GTX+ but that isnt what your looking for so good luck with the search. :)
