[WTS] 290x, 390, More?

27 May 2016 - 02:53 AM

I'm looking to part with some things around here in hopes that the wife will let me buy new toys  :whistling:


I'll keep it as simple as I can, prices include shipping to US with the exception of AK/HI, I will consider any offers via PM don't be afraid to ask. Pics by request as I REALLY don't want to take them in and out of the PC more than needed.


Powercolor R9 290x PCS+ - $205

OCC review of the card

Newegg Link



I do NOT have the orig box, card was RMAed due to a bad fan (they wouldn't ship just a fan) and I sent it using orig packaging, of course got back generic RMA box (as expected).

Card has been in use for about a year now after RMA I actually never really tried to OC it, I did the orig card and it didn't care for it (had crappy Elpida memory) but never bothered with this one, just bought another card when I went to a 4K monitor.




XFX R9 390 Double Dissipation  - SOLD



I'm doing to assume the box is lost on this one too.  I've had it for a while now for that sweet crossfire x action after I got a 4K monitor. I OCed this one a bit when I first got it before putting it with the 290x, don't remember what was stable etc, I know I had an issue with some driver update right after that and never bothered to OC it again when once I put it with the 290x.


Here's a quick GPU-Z screenshot of both of them at the moment:





XFX Double D 7850 2GB - SOLD



I also have a ton of older cards that I doubt anyone would want, if anyone does let me know and I'll see what I have for sure, chances are most of them are barely worth the price of shipping if that.

Best Cinebench Score EVER

13 January 2016 - 06:16 PM

So I'm working on a laptop for a customer that happens to be from a good friend's mother (Her mother bought it and it screwed up and she brought it to me to fix) and in the process of figuring out if there was anything else wrong with it (The BIOS went crazy, reset it and fixed 90% of the problems).


I decided to put some load on the CPU and see how it did and used Cinebench as it doesn't need to be installed and I've got a copy sitting on my main Network drive, gotta love these results:




It's a little umm...slow.  Especially considering my main rig scores around 1300 and the i5-4300Y in that list @133 is my tablet...

cchalo's stuff for sale

20 September 2014 - 10:38 PM

I need to clean out a few things around here that I don't really need that my usual customers don't normally need.  For those who don't know I run a fairly small PC repair business. Pricing includes shipping to cont. US and can be negotiable. I will also consider trades so don't be afraid to ask I would however prefer we do so via PM.


First up, video cards.  Listed in the order they are pictured below.




Zotac GTX 760 2GB – ZT-70401-10P - $160 SOLD


XFX 7850 2GB – FX-785A-CD - $60 (Link is to the version Newegg sold, seems to be same specs but this one was a new in box RMA replacement for an older card with a lifetime warranty)

Like I said it was an RMA replacement I took care of for a friend, he bought a card to replace the other card while waiting and "gave" it to me with the idea of splitting the money when I sold it (that was...a few...months ago) I played BF4 at 1080P and medium settings just fine on it, you could do high (no AA) but I don't like the occasional framerate drops below 60 with higher settings.






Next up a current gen CPU

AMD  FX-8350 - FD8350FRW8KHK OEM CPU - $115 SOLD



ASUS Crosshair II Formula - $50 SOLD


AMD Phenom II X6 1035T - $70 SOLD




Thanks for taking a look and again PM with any offers on items and I'll try to respond ASAP  :teehee:




Oh some other stuff someone may want but I don't feel like trying to figure out pricing at the moment:


Some used 500GB/1TB Hard drives (and many smaller). Some are a few years old some are a few months old but unless I'm doing a real budget repair job I tend to use new drives with longer warrantys to try and stand out above my competition.


Assorted PC100/133/DDR/DDR2 memory Anything below 256MB for DDR and older or 512MB and smaller for DDR2 I'll give you as long as you pay for shipping/packaging.


Some older video cards like a 9400GT etc


I have a Core 2 Duo based MacBook Pro also.  It works well if you want to play with a Mac (I used it to learn more about OSX in general) Has some cosmetic stuff wrong with it but if anyone's interested I'll look up the details and set a price.
