Default Video Card Question

Hi, I am looking to buy a new video card and I found this on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=2030783203 I was un-aware that there was such a thing as a 128mb GeForece 3 card. Could you help me out by offering advice as to whether this is legit, the price looks rather low for something like that. Do all the specs look right?

Thanks,

Josh

Here’s the manufacturers' page for the card he’s selling so it looks legit in that aspect. http://www.joytech.com/apoolo%20Gefo...rd_id=CGTS3TI2 . Other than that, he does have a bit more negative feedback (8 in the last six months) than I like to see when bidding but the price is good.

For $130 you can purchase a brand new card. Get the ATI 8500 Radeon, its top of ATI's range, and can out perform a GeForce 3 anyday.

Thanks for the help.

No, I think the 8500 is not quite as good as the GF3.

You may not think, but benchmark wise it is far superior.
