This is what he replied:

"I will provide a refund. It was never my intent to deceive you and I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. I have a evga gtx 670 I could give you if you would be interested in that instead. I just took it out of my main rig and it works perfectly. Just let me know what you want me to do."

Only downer is now I would have to pay return shipping, so I will still end up losing money. FFS.

Well if he's being honest about that, then that's good. You lose a bit of money for shipping, yeah, but at least that's better than a really expensive paperweight.

I've sold some electronic goods on Ebay myself, but never actually bought any. Actually scratch that, I bought a 4870 for $56 once because the fan in one of my 4870's went kaput.

But yeah, buying something like a flagship GPU from someone with no credibility was a very risky move. It seems like the guy is willing to make amends and wasn't trying to scam you though. The card may have just been damaged during shipping or something, which honestly sucks for the both of you.

see if there is an updated (BIOS) ROM for your MSi card and re-flash your card as well as looking for a BIOS update for your motherboard.

edit:
re-seating of the card (GPU)
simply removing the card and then wiping clean the PCI slot with an alcohol solution and cloth
just to make sure it all clean and clear then reinstall the card, boot here up.
don't for get the power adapters.

i'd open a case.

as a seller on ebay, i can assure you ebay heavily favors the buyer to the point sellers get scamed all the freakin' time. my favorate buyer scam is for them to claim they got an empty box. Ebay actually sides with the buyer in such a bs claim. so the buyer gets to keep the item AND gets a refund. Makes it hard to want to be an ebay seller frankly.

recently i sold a perfect, brand new (fully tested) msi lga 1366 mb on ebay for what i thought at the time was a great deal for both me and the buyer... then the problems started. first the buyer demands the card is shipped overnight (an option i clearly stated on the auction i didn't do) then refused to pay any extra for shipping when i agreed to send it 3 business day... something that cost me an extra 10 bucks just to keep him happy (though the auction clearly stated it would be shipped within 3 days of payment standard shipping making the total time 10 business days or less)... he then claimed the moment he got it it was broken. And demanded i replace it. I refused, tired of his curse filled emails in caps. Though it meant i'd have a suspended sellers account till it was resolved i was ready to fight this tooth and nail, cause i knew it worked fine.

Ebay took less then 24 hours to render a default judgement in favor of the buyer... then to add insult to injury, not only made me give him his money back, but pay for the board to be returned, AND charged me a 10% fee. what really kicked me in the balls was the MB I got back WASN'T the motherboard i sent him. ebay didn't give a rats ass about that either. The end result is I was out $40, a motherboard, in exchange my seller rating remained 100% and his buyer rating remained 100%.

trust me on this. EBAY will get your back if you challenge this one. trick is a seller with 0 rating won't have any interest in playing ball, where as I was forced to since a 100% trust rating built up over years of selling is imperative if you plan on being on ebay for a while.


which means I would use the oven trick. i've saved MBs, sound cards and video cards with it. might fix your problem.
