So I spotted this 9800GX2 on eBay for very little, however the card is faulty. So basically I would like OCNs input on if I should pick this card up and try to bake it to life.

Issues described by the seller

This card is Faulty, when inserted in a computer there is no display and the fan doesnt spin, however all the lights glow green.
Do you think this can be fixed with a bake?

Sounds dead to me, but you could always try baking the card.

But I wouldn't take the chance.

EDIT: Also what brand is it? If it is EVGA it most likely has a lifetime warranty if step-up (meaning you will get a much better card). That is if he registered the card in the first 30 days.

You may want to look into it I know XFX has a double lifetime warranty, I am not sure when they enacted this, but it is worth looking in to.

On 9800GX2 it was sometimes common for the internal SLI bridge to become disconnected which can sometimes cause this... but I agree with others... not worth the risk since there are a million other things that could be the culprit.
