Default used video card...

ok there is this store near me that is selling a a geforce card i dont even know wat card it is ad i tried to check but i didnt know how to check wat number it was (eg. 5500 /6600 w/e) he told me he was selling it. he took it from a customer that upgrading his video card so the guy took his old one.
there is no box no drivers and i asked him about the drivers and he said its a plug in play card.
he told me he was selling it for 30$ and i sorta wanna get the card and just play guild wars.. im gonna go back to the store 2morrow to check wat number card it is, but u guys think i should get it? if its like 5500/6200/ (it had a fan on it) still thinks its worth it for 30$

i think some ati9200 had fans... $30 for a 9200 is a lot.. no? so there is that risk!

the fact it has a fan doesn't really give a good indication. even geforce 2 cards had fans. i have an ancient agp 2x card on my desk right now that has a fan. well if it is a geforce card just download the latest nVIDIA Forceware direct from their site
