i bought two gtx 275's on a complete impulse, i didnt ask here first as i should have, i paid 135 shipped, i intend on using them for folding, i know very little of the cards i am reading reviews but they are all old and dont compare to the newer stuff, i dont know what to go by

 

 

 

bottom line, is this a good deal?

^^ Still, not a great deal, but a descent deal.

50 per card, shipped would have been a good deal. ;)

Waste of money IMHO. A newer card would be faster, cheaper, and more efficient. Can't you get a standard 650ti for that kind of cash?

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

not a bad deal really... they are beastly cards as I still have mine. 60ea is a great buy for cards in nice shape. I'd use them :)

well i bought em im gonna use them, thats what i get for impulse, they should beat the heck out of my 8800gt anyway, my computer is in bad shape, my computer screen looks like its snowing, this 8800 has been through a lot, folding 24/7 and had a soda spilled on it (through the top of my case) and still going, the soda fried the 450gts i had even though it was in the 2nd slot which doesn't make sense
