The Poor Boy Fund 2

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...tem=2070906480

I would love someone (preferably a brit) who bids and buys my video card. I am a Poor Boy, nobody loves me, and I need hard cash.

This thread can be used to either:

A) Discuss Bilbo and his rank processed meat posting

B) Discuss the ATi Radeon 9700 and its pitfalls

C) Post pictures of girl / boys in swimsuits.

But the Radeon 9700 Pro is a fine graphics card and is well worth anyone's hard earned arm-and-leg.

Isn't university great? I blew a year's savings in my first two weeks. Great times...

There's no need to tell me when I'm right;
I operate on that principle exclusively and with absolute certainty

Agreed.

But only if you have a cpu that can make use of all that power.

£275 = $436.84 US Dollars
£275 = $779.74 Aus Dollars

Interestingly, £1 = 2,605,986.93 Turkish Lira. I must cost about a million lira to get on a bus - that's ludicrous.

i already have my GF4 Ti4200 64Mb, which cost half as much, and from which i wouldn't see much improvement with that card.

and besides, i need to fund my hedonistic lifestyle (anyone what my spare GF2MX?)

Me too, it only cost £99. I think £300 is a little too much to spend on a graphics card. I did try to tell him but he was determined to beat me.

In support of aggressive sex with llamas, and freedom from the obligation to explain.
