Upgrade sale: MSI GTX 260 55nm

Will Ship To: US48

Selling off my extra gear to fund a main rig upgrade.

In here i have an MSI branded reference GTX 260 55nm (216 shaders). Got this as a freebie as the previous owner didn't want to go through the hassle of figuring out what the issue with it was. Turns out the power chokes immediately after the PCI-E power plugs were overheating. A quick dab of thermal grease on each one so they made contact with the heatplate and now the card works fine.
After implementing the fix i ran the card in my computer for a few days including a 30 minute stretch of folding@home (max temp in the mid 70s) and it functioned flawlessly during this period. As for overclocking I did not do any.
Edit 07/07/2013: Got it set up and running in a secondary machine as a folding card, and it's chewing through 353 point workunits in about an hour apiece at 666/1440/1053, netting just shy of 8600 PPD. Yeah Fermi based cards can crank out higher numbers and through considerably larger work units, but hey for a cheap card that aint too shabby.

Price is $40 plus 1/2 shipping via USPS priority flat rate. I am willing to negotiate, but dont get greedy.
