    I daresay the seller isn't native to the US :D But yes, it's a great deal so far.

    Use grammar with confident!

    its not a PRO version of the card...

    here is what you get with the non-pro version..

    gpu/memory clocks == 275/270 mhz
    128bit memory bus
    4 rendering pipelines... effectively a 4x1 architecture

    IF you are lucky you may be able to soft mod your video card to a 9700 non-pro which would make it an excellent buy...

    else remember that what you are getting is NOT a 9500pro or just slightly less than it... :) it is a lot slower...

    still dx9 and still a nice product... just don't think it will set the world on fire :)

    if its cheap though... go for it...

    with 3.3ns memory, it's good for a 275/333mhz clock without overclocking, essentially.
    just thought i'd point out. :)

    the memory can take it.. certainly the board is designed to support slightly higher clocks (its basically a reference 9700non-pro board and can handle more chatter than the 9500 layout gives out)...

    With the current bid at 121 for a 9500 non-PRO it doesn't look like it will end up being a price savings. Auction prices jump just before bidding closes due to the auto bid features.

    They have sapphire for $120 @ 64 meg and $135 @ 128 meg. Skip the bidding hassle unless it is a used card at real savings from a bidder with a long history. (Or Sazar's old 9700 PRO ;).

    my cards off the market m8... :)

    been sold... and I am hoping the buyer is having as much fun with it as I did :D

    as is... if you go into the 120/130 price range you may want to consider the gf4 ti 4200 as a solution (128mb) or spend a bit more and get a 9500pro... or stick to your guns and get the 9500 non-pro... :)

    the pro version will be the only one out of the price range you seem to be setting...

    happy shopping m8 :D
