Hate to burst your bubble but you won't get anywhere near 200 for that card on ebay...the only "successful" sellers on ebay are those selling grey market products or those who have access to wholesale or bulk discounts

People go to ebay to get deals, they aren't stupid, unless your product is in high demand you will get considerably less than what you paid for it. I sold a 9800Pro for $150 last summer to give you an idea

lol, i mean to contribute towards it man, obviously. how'd you expect me to get an amd/nvidia super system with $200?? 200 bucks is a signifcant amount off a 1000 dollar system, that's like 1/5 of the cost.. but I won't get 200 anyway, even if I get 100, 80 or 50, i don't care, this old pc is going to my sister and she doesn't care for a 9600xt to play minesweeper and the sims. better I sell it and put that money with some more money to buy a better, new pc.

and yea, it's not bursting my bubble here, i kno it won't go for 200, most of em are going between 80 and 90 for 9600XT. Considering I have a Vantec fan cooler/copper heatsink combo, with ramsinks as well (which can be easily transferable to another card whenever an upgrade is needed), installed on the 9600xt, I might be able to get it, if I'm lucky, for 100 bucks canadian.

rofl, I remember those things, I hated em, they were ****ing huge, but awesome. I completely forget there was SLi then, but it wasn't the same, weren't the Voodoos pre-made to be SLi? Like, you couldn't just have one and then attach another one, it just came out of the box connected (and undisconnectable) as SLi. Iunno, weird.

No, the Voodoos required a little IDE cable to connect between them and it never launched because they never released drivers for it. Not to mention AGP revolutionized gaming so they kinda got forgotten. Teh Voodoos where huge but i have seen them running Doom3.

that's pretty sweet. Looks playable, but the scary factor just isn't there. No shadows...
