Isn't there an automatic bid or something along those lines?

Were "watching" the item?

There must have been a reason nobody bid on it.

I started to think that as well. I remember way back when PS3 wasn't in stores but all over eBay and people were selling them for a killing...couple thousand dollars really. There was one for a hundred dollars. You know what it was and why NO ONE bid on it? In small print, he wrote; "you are bidding on a picture of the PS3, not the actual gaming system itself, just a picture".

I mean WOW.

He might have. Sometimes, sellers will settle their auctions early if they strike a deal with someone outside of eBay though the communication probably came through eBay. I've had a couple requests like that in the past while selling, but I try to remain fair to other bidders. Especially if one is bidding on it or there are buyers "watching" it.

Can you provide a link to the auction? Or did it go away because you weren't watching it?

Yeah Bullzi, it appears as if the listing was canceled. Plus the auction says Used video card. But does it say what condition of used it is?

ya, here's a quote from the auction, guess i just missed that small little piece that said he ended it early, he did relist it though, but now he only has a buy it now price

"I've had this card for a few months, this card works great. I run all my games near or on the highest graphics mode and everything runs just great

This comes with all original packaging and cables etc!"
