Default Big problem?

Ok here is this radeon x800 pro on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...110897901&rd=1

1 day left and it is at 152 dollars because he says it is not working properly. He gives all the details in the description. So what do you guys think the problem might be, is it worth getting, is it an easy fix? I know a guy who is great with computer stuff and helps me out for free. Anyways just wondering if it could be a really easy fix and worth bidding on or if it would be stupid to gamble on something like this. Thanks

transistors are dependent on quality, normally each is 5-20$ depensing on quality.

u need to remove the old solder and solder the new transistors back in. if u or the guy u know does that kinda work on pc parts, it may be easy. but i of course have no experience soldering pc parts, so i dont know wat dificaulties or dangers there are doing that to expansive pc parts.
--------------------------------------------------------------
i would bet though, that if hes selling it on ebay, and says that it doesnt work properly... it prolly doesnt work at all.

yeah I think it might too much of agamble. I have solder skills... i have built guitar amplifiers and solder parts in guitars, etc. Never done anyhting with computer parts before though. I think I may pass. BUt there is the link for anyone who thinks they can fix it easily thats a good price.
