    Refurbished Video Cards (UK)

    i found a site selling refurbished video cards with a 30 day RTB Warranty at prices that i was soo surprised i thought i needed to post it here.

    they include:

    ATI Radeon 9800 128MB - 94 including VAT
    ATI Radeon 9700 Pro All In Wonder 128Mb - 111 inc VAT
    ATI Radeon 9700 Pro 128MB - 74 inc. VAT
    ATI Radeon 9700 128 MB Graphics Card - 47 inc. VAT

    does anyone think that a 9700 would be flashable to a 9700PRO?


    HERE'S the site
    Gigabyte Z87M-D3H l Pentium DC 3.2GHz l 16GB Ram l 64GB OCZ SSD l Radeon 7750 OC Edition l Windows 7 Ultimate X64
    Dell OptiPlex 745 l Intel C2D E6600 2.4GHz l 4GB Ram l 64GB OCZ SSD l Windows 7 Ultimate X64
    Lenovo ThinkPad T61 l C2D T7700 2.4GHz l 8GB Ram l 60GB Kingston SSD l Windows 7 Ultimate X64

    The cores usually had no problems going to the Pro speeds or higher. It is the memory that might not, but with a 256 memory bus, this is not a big deal. I'd get it and just try to overclock it. Those AIW cards look good to if they come with the remotes and cable, but most refurbished ones do not.

    The 9700NP is away already looks like i might get the 9700PRO then, how fast when overclocked (with or without new cooling) will the 9700PRO be compaired to a 9800PRO and my 9600XT

    It likely can match the 9800Pro and smoke the 9600XT.

    If it helps in anyway, ti4200 I had was OCed to 4600 and without using FSAA, should have been about as fast as 9600PRO is today.

    When I got R9800PRO (RIP ) the difference in games was definitely worth the money even in CPU bound UT2003/2004.
