I completely and highly doubt they are legit. First off the 9600 will not be a G94... it's going to be a G92 that has been scaled down. I doubt they would be apearing on e-bay too... Companies dont just give these cards out to anyone to be tested and then allow them to be sold on e-bay... if that were the case than those companies wouldnt be "giving" those people cards to test.
i have 2 pos evals along with all my ALIAS on different forums, i go only and solely by Xazax or Xazax310, this guy whoever he is has zero relations to me and i just found out about "him" today when musing through my threads
this is now going way over my head and THG is the worst people i have ever seen about it, ive been posting here for 2 years now and never have i seen in any other forums such rude remarks as on THG.
Hmm did you guys ever stop to think to ACUTALLY contact me? maybe a PM or my AIM because maybe im a real person, guess not.
Just so you know
the cards are "MAGICALLY STOLEN" because you know i broke into Nvidia's supersecret factory and stole a couple of 9600GT cuz im kool like that, i saw the 9800GX2 but i was like thats so lame, i thought about Flashing a 8800GT bios to that of a 9600GT and then changing the cooler and well as the angle of the 8800GT to match the 9600GT to con people into believing me but i figured that required to much work and im lazy.
honestly, if he is selling the cards and they are legit, shouldn't there be some kind of BIOS cd with them, even if he got them off craigslist, the guy who sold it there should have sold them with BIOS cd if they were originally from nV, i mean, already selling the product illegally, whats the difference if you include the illegal BIOS cd with it? probably just a guy with know how on how to modify the circuitry on a PCB, to change the way the card is read...
Personally I don't really care much, they're weak cards and not ground breaking like even a GX2 / X2 would be. It's a replacement for the GF8600 so M'eh.
I'm sure Ryan from PcPer will give people more insight.
But seriously Xazax, don't be surprised by skepticism when you claim to have an unreleased graphics card(s) and then provide blurry pics as proof of a Yeti.
If it's a digital camera, it only takes about 10 shots (try with/without flash even) to get 1 that isn't blurry so people can see distinguishable marking, unless the whole point is to be indistinguishable.
Anywhoo, no point in stirring the pot, but these threads get locked, especially if they contain links to e-Bay.
