Default Hooray for eBay!!!!

I was just bored, so I did a sweep of eBay for underpriced graphics cards, and I struck gold.

Sapphire HD 4830 for $50 + FS

and

XFX 9800 GTX+ 512MB For $50 + $13.30 shipping.

EPIC WIN!!!

More video cards to play with, and one can be my new PhysX card.

The 4830 is new, and the seller said the 9800 GTX+ worked.

Yeah, video cards go cheap on ebay for some reason. I wish It could be the same way with cell phones..

Yep, some people just want them gone quick and put them on at low buy it nows.

Auctioned items almost always make their true value, but you can often get some great bargains from buy it now.

Anyone remember my two HD 4870 X2s?
