View Full Version : ebay: geforce gts 64 mb...powercolor

I've seen this brand consistently be the 'cheap' brand in pricewatch, but this is kinda ridiculous:
he started bids at $1, and it's seems like it's a dutch auction....one still has no bids, and the other's at $45 bucks
2 days left....so, possibly a good deal in the making...

Bids are already going up. Ebay bidding action usually goes on at the last minute, so it doesn't matter how it looks 2 days before close.
Plus this guy is a shipping cheat. $10 for shipping?!?!?! He's crazy. 1 lb via Priority Mail is $3.50 and 2 lbs is $3.95. Even UPS is cheaper than $10.

He's not a "cheat" on the shipping, at least he mentions it up front unlike some other sellers who rip you off at the end of the auction, and he does note it is "Shipping & Handling", so the difference in the ACTUAL price of postage, is the time it takes to wrap it up, drive to the post office and mail it. As a small time eBay seller myself, it's obviously easier for major sellers who have a daily UPS or FedEx pickup and don't have to expend money to go mail stuff. Or who can buy packing/shipping supplies in bulk (or better yet get kickbacks from carriers because they do some much business with them).

one of those auctions is for a geforce2 mx

notice the pic on the auction that says it has TV out... the pic has no TV out shown... makes you go Hummmmm...
also, it looks a LOT more like a Kryo II to me than a G-force

I know this is off topic from the thread but I was looking for a tv and came across this guy's auctions:
-No feedback and a bunch of high priced items that all end on the same day- sounds like a scam to me... what do you guys think???

I think for a guy with 0 feedback I'd wait & see how these auctions go before I'd bid on anything from him.

Oh yea plus for some reason there is no coolers on any of those chips, makes me go..ummm.. i mean wtf
And you'd think he'd be able to spell what he's selling correctly.
TWICE it says "GeForec 2", hmmm.

I used to work for Power Color...good luck on technical support...and yes..some of the geforce do not have cooling fans.and the one's that have it are small and were RMA'd because the cards got too hot even with the cooling fan. One of the hardware test websites...don't remember which one...gave it a total score of 59%...I remember because my boss threw a fit and called the tester stupid and other expletives I would rather not say...
