Simple as that really. Which ATi graphics card for less than £50 would you reccommend that I buy. I can buy second-hand if need be. I had considered a second-hand 9800 pro(for about £65), but was worried that it might have non-obvious damage caused by overclocking. Should I be concerned about this?
Its like everything else on Ebay my friend, you may get a card from a person whos only used it as its meant to be or you could get a card from someone whos overclocked it. Theres no way of telling. Personally I would only buy a second hand card off a friend who I knew hadn't mucked about with it, but thats me. If you would move away from the ATI one onto Nvidia then this is good for the money click here not cutting edge and certainly not as fast as a 9800Pro but good for the cash. Have click here look at the charts and make your own mind up
My mate paid 100 pounds for a 9600xt off ebay. Didnt last long. Fan packed in. Myself, I would never buy a 2nd hand graphics card from an unknown user. As Totally-braindead says I would only consider it if I knew exactly where it came from and who used it.
Yeah..that's what I thought. There are many for sale with a description which basically says that they are selling the card despite the fact that it will play the latest games with ease. Hmmm...sounds like they are probably faulty. There are also a lot of declared faulty 9800pros on ebay...perhaps made faulty by onme insane overclock too far.
