Hi.I've just bought a 9800 Pro for an absolute bargain (£135-in fact i bought three and have sold the other two on ebay! :wink: )so I'm going to sell my 9500 Pro on ebay.(I'm not angling for buyers on here-don't worry!).
The issue is, I have modified my card with a stock AMD 60mm hsf (bolted on) and added ramsinks (just thermal taped), so it is running at 384/317.I could easily take off the hsf and put back the stock one and remove the ramsinks too, then put it back to 275/270.
Basically, do people think i will get more for it modified and overclocked (it is completely stable and looks good) or in its original condition at stock speeds (since people do not generally like buying things that have been overclocked)?
no matter how hard you try, you can't polish a turd. :]<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by ad_rach on 02/18/04 08:35 AM.</EM></FONT></P>
It probably depends on the buyer. Write "I can overclock this graphics card or keep it at stock speeds, but I'm an expierenced overclocker and I know for a fact that this card can be OC'ed and still be completely stable and produce a great picture. If I overclock it I will add in some good ram sinks and an AMD 60mm HSF so you won't have to worry about it overheating."....or something like that. I know I used the word "overclock" a little too much, but oh well.
I did indeed!I don't need one in the slightest but i couldn't help myself! :smile:
I was going to buy more but they ran out too quickly and I can't be bothered waiting.I have sold the extra 2 on ebay for £155.99 each.Not bad-just a pity both ebay and paypal raped me for the privilege!
