Hi,

I found a bargain vid card priced @ 1000pesos (about $25 usd).

HIS ICEQX HD6950 VIDEOCARD 1GB-256BIT PCIE DDR5

Here's my PC (bought last month)
Quote:

psu: Seasonic (S12II) 520watts PSU 80Plus Bronze
cpu: Intel Core i3 3220 3.3GHz (Dual Core) Ivy Bridge --- New!
ASRock H77M
Memory, Corsair Vengeance 8GB 2x4gb ddr3 1600 CL9
hdd/ssd: Intel 330 Series 60gb sata3
atx: NZXT Source 210 Elite


Is this a good buy for me? Not a serious gamer.
Is it ok for my PSU?

As the seller if you can test the card before you pay for it.

The retailer is an actual pc parts store. Probably a typo/mistake. If so, any good card here:

I'm looking for a very cheap one (max $50 budget) or shall I'll get a used one. Is that ok?

Thanks!

Get a Radeon HD 6670(or 6770 if you can afford) 1 GB GDDR%- I own one and it works like a charm, coupled with atleast 3-4 gigs of ram. Hope this helps

Best solution

hey kabayan hehe

hmn, i know this store, i bought an item from them (i think its them at least haha) late last year.
must be a typo, just remember that if something is too good to be true... it probably is.

well if you can test and they can give you decent warranty... go for it

wait... i just checked, the 11500 was crossed out, so i think that is 9999 and not 999.

if that is the case, it's not good, i believe my brothers 6870 was 6k only, brand new. different brand though
