Asus V8440 Deluxe, Geforce 4 Ti 4400
Thanks! I think I'll give it a go as my 939 board died so it would be good to replace that too.
Ah. It was listed 22 weeks ago according to a not-signed-in web browser. The app just says over a week ago. Helpful!
Well the guy responded and it's still available so I'm picking it all up today for £25. Plus fuel as it is half an hour away...
haha, I messaged the guy soon after the add was posted, but he wasn't willing at all to post the card. If it works, that's a very nice card, I love how it looks.
If you're interested in a pre-build system socket 604, I got a Dell Workstation 450.
Turns out it's a v4860 ultra, a ti4600.
Very nice find that mate. Worth a lot more than what you paid
So the board (the main reason I went out there) did a little pop from a vrm (I think?) when I tried it. The caps all look good. The Thermal take 430Watt PSU had a bulging cap so I'm not going to bother with it. The blue MX440 has a bulging cap, but the 4600 works yay!
The board came with an Athlon 64 X2 4200 which hopefully lives. I think mine is a 3800.
I also quite like the enormous and passive thermaltake Sonic Tower CPU cooler that comes with a whole load of mounts. Might try that out!
Well I now feel like I failed
That is worth more than the whole lot, very good find!
Completely ignored since my reply on the 8th. Can’t ask eBay to step in until the 13th, but don’t expect a response from the seller by then.
I stand corrected. The seller responded overnight with an incredible generous "partial refund" of £5. The cards cost me £59.99 including postage.
When you open the case tomorrow hes going to be really mad because under ebay managed payments they hold his payouts while there is an open case
I genuinely don’t understand what his play is here, he can’t believe he’s going to win surely?
possibly in denial or delaying it to be awkward. Unfortunately there is way too many idiots on ebay these days.
Case opened at midnight, resolved in my favour before 1am
I finally gave the ti 4600 a good test and it is fine, if a little loud. It scored 11,375 points on 3DMark 2001 with a slow Sempron 1.6GHz CPU. Well, I say slow but I keep forgetting this GPU launched in Feb 2002 so it's probably not a bad match.
Very nice! Full refund? Did the other one end up working?
Never even tested it (lot of effort to go plumbing in a watercooling loop for a card that I might have to send back). Full refund including return postage, so the seller is not only having to refund, but is now down on the sale, and has negative feedback to boot (as he only had 3 feedback as a buyer, my one feedback as a seller took him to 75% in one hit!)
