graphic cards from America

  jameski 00:58 24 Nov 2004

I'm thinking of buying a Radeon 9700 pro 128mb card from an American Ebay shop for £89 including shipping. Will there be any power problems and is this a good move? Cheers

If it arrives DOA or doesn't work within the warranty period (assuming it's new & comes with one) would you have to return it at YOUR expense?

I'm not too sure of the price - perhaps someone who knows better will advise. G

If you want a 9700, you'd be better off buying from Overclockers:

At least that way, you'll have a UK based company to deal with if you need warranty support. Also, you'll get it next day !

The card will not know it's not in America.

VAT will be charged at 17.5% plus admin dependant on the distribution company.
