    Anyone interested in a 1GB GTX 550 TI@1GHz? (offers)

    For the record I live in the USA
    when upgrading your GPU be sure to check if your PSU is good enough - http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
    not all PSU manufactures tell the truth about there wattage http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx

    I decided to upgrade my GPU, new one should arrive next week, figured i would ask here if anyone wants my old one (2 years old)
    Here is the model:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121435
    I have it overclocked via BIOS at 1GHz (1125 millivolts, 1100 stock) stable in all real world usage (tested multiple times in 3dmark11, valley (opengl/dx11), heaven (opengl/dx11), align vs predator), it will stay completely silent with a low RPM side fan on the case, without that it is quiet but you can hear it if you listen for it under full load.

    It still has head plenty of headroom room to be OCed farther, the Cooler is no where near it limit, only thing that will hold you back is the cheap heat sync on the voltage regulators, but at least it has one. You should be able to override the 1150 millivolt cap with a BIOS hack did not try that.

    Only sign of use if there is a little dust on it. It has only been used with high quality power supply

    It will run just as fast as the next model up on stock voltage (which is less than ASUS set the voltage to on the below card)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121434
    that stable even in crazy theoretical test
    if you would prefer it clocked like this just ask, or if you would prefer stock i can do that also

    Here are some GPU benchmarks(click for full size) under xubuntu 13.10 64bit (GPU at 1GHz, technically 999.8MHz)


    Will include original packaging/accessories and original receipt (came with a 3 year warranty, officially reaches 2 years old on the 25th)
    I can include a bootable USB to flash the cards BIOS (if you don't want to make your own from a guide) no the usb is not free

    I listed it on ebay since ebay save me a sell promo email to get me to sell by not charging me 10% closing fees
    I have it clocked at 975MHz, the USB can be used to change the clock speed to 1GHz without any need for a windows install

    if anyone is interested
