I have just won a 8800GT on Ebay! - Page 2

post #11 of 28
The Accelero S1 should be quite good... was planning to get one myself. Only £15 without a fan, and another £3 or £4 for a reasonable fan if you want.

Try finding one in the US in stock, no one has them here. Good option also.

I have just ordered a DuOrb from overclock.co.uk

Not many people have used these so far, so I will let you all know how it performs!

Good deal on the 8800gt at least for UK price.
But do test the card carefully upon purchase. Does the seller have a return policy? You said the fan wasnt working, and it doesn't take long for the GPU to fry.

My advice to you is get whatever aftermarket cooler you can, get it QUICK.
Test the card right when you get it. If it works,great. If not, you have a problem. Most ebayer does not provide warranty on used computer parts, some provide 3 day return policy. Just make sure to have a aftermarket cooler ready when you recieve the card to test it out. You don't want to wait 3 to 4 after you get the card to recieve your cooler to test.

Thanks for the advice on the returns.

I have the cooler coming Next Business Day and the card should arrive tomorrow too. The auction states that the card has been fully tested and is working, except for the cooler fan. It is a risk, but sometimes to get savings like this you gotta take the risks

Its a shame that in the UK we have to sometimes resort to these auctions to get a good deal! £170+ for a new retail 8800GT is a lot compared to the US... its quite sickening actually.

It has arrived... damn, and I thought my X1950 was huge!

Card looks virtually brand new. Will look at the fan tonight, see what I can do... I fancy a bit of gaming. Du-Orb arrives tomorrow

*excited*

what the 8800gt is tiny compared to a 1950xtx (my old card), would be ok to place somes temps of the duorb, i know they are good but nothing beats realworld real people telling you wnat they are like
