Not sure whats up with the new orb links. It wont work for me here at work either. But needless to say, i only scored 17500 with quad SLI turned on. So both cards are now back in their boxes. They overclock pretty well, but it just seems that anything past 2 cards is a waste. Is 550 shipped to much to ask per card?

Well, with the rebates from Newegg it's basically the same they are asking. I would say $530ish since they are opened and very mildly used.

No, stick with $550, more people will be willing to just pay it out then deal with rebates. And you hardly used it at all...


Disappointing I was hoping to see you in the 25k's... oh well


You made a profit off of this right? or will...?

No profit, but less of a loss than selling my GTS's. With gts's going for under 200, i would have lost at least 160 per card. I'll only lose about 50-60 per card here, but, thats after 4 months using my GTS's. So not too bad. Heck i spend that much a month on booze

And mildly used, they have less than 8 hours on them.

I tried to emphasize the mildly with the word VERY, but I guess what you could put is "Tested for performance assurance!"

Hehehe. Yep. The first 9800GX2 I received was DOA But the second one works great!

EDIT: Oh and 17500 isn't much considering I was getting 16500 with one 9800GX2 and only a 3.2GHz overclock. The quad SLI just isn't good for anything other than the highest of resolutions right now.
