    I have been checking..and yes I did see a 560gtx ti with "one fan blade broken and no video output but otherwise in perfect condition"..you have to laugh.

    I really dont know how these fan blades get broken off,somebody jabbing a screwdriver in to see what would happenor over aggressive cleaning?

    Just for info..i trawled thru the 465 cards ,theyre looking for second hand values higher than a 460,which is ok on a new price comparrison but no use to me.

    A 550 tii while certainly better than a 9600gt is a lot below a 460 gtx in performance terms.

    460gtx prices ,both the 768 mb and the 1 gb have dropped a lil in price second hand..but not very much.

    870 amd cards even second hand too expensive for anything decent.

    pre dx11 pcie hi end cards,both amd and nvidia are pretty cheap,in comparrison(and that is what I had).

    Looks like ill go for something like a 620 2 gb card ..(kick your a leading edge gx card guy!)
    I suppose Id been hoping that there were some huge power triple gpu single slot cards that were surplus to requirements running around :0.
    But wait I found a bargain:

    GPGPU NVIDIA Tesla C2050 Computing Processor PCIe x16 Card : PC Accessories - Find Desktop Accessories | Dell UK

    and free shipping!

    This is also very tempting for 5000 there may be a clearance problem tho ..

    now I just need to test an amd firepro for comparison, they should be able to manipulate images of my buggati veyron properly.
    Thas a tongue in cheek j/k btw.

    I bought a GTS450 from MSI (which has a good warrenty by the way) all for around 100.00.
    It is a decent performer for what I do now (light gaming some video editing planned) but it has DDR 3 RAM in it not the DDR5 that is being used now in most cards.
