Hey all,

I bought an X850 off a buddy who ordered a new Dual 2.3. It doesn't perform in Motion as well as I'd hoped so I'm going with a 6800 Ultra. The card is a week old. Looking for $425 shipped obo. I take paypal and can be reached at moviecutter (at) mac (dot) com. Thanks.

I also have a Blackberry 7290 I bought to replace my lost Treo, well now that I have a new Treo, I no longer need the Blackberry. This is the one with bluetooth and a full QWERTY keyboard. It was tough for me to go back to a Treo after having this awesome device. It comes with a USB cable, belt-clip holster, software, and a docking cradle. These retail for around $400, I'm looking to get $225 shipped. PM me or email me at moviecutter (at) mac (dot) com. I will post pics tonight. Thanks.

They sell a refurbished X800 on newegg for $360, and that can be overclocked to the specs of your card. Maybe you can bring down the price a bit. And also since it has no box.

do you really think an un-modified X800 from Newegg will even work in a Mac? Do a quick google on Mac card flashing...you'll see that any old Newegg card won't work in a Mac because of firmware issues, and flashing hte firmware sometimes require solder jobs, and even if it's just a straight flash you'll void your warranty. $450 is a steal because the only thing you can compare it to is Apple's price of like $599

Thanks for the advice. And I just saw them take away the refurbished model again from the website. Also about a month and a half ago, I saw 3 x800 going on ebay for 320 each. Sorry for using your thread.

Ok, before crapping a thread, read the original post carefully. It says $450 OBO, OBO stands for Or Best Offer. If you don't like the price, shoot me an email or PM with a price you would pay for it. Simple as that. Thanks for the free bump.

Sorry. I still don't know what Feeler or OBO or NB is, although I think it means no box. Another free bump.

OBO is "or best offer"

OBO is "or best offer"
Feeler means someone is trying to get a feel for the price they can get. Some forums allow that, some don't. But that is a sweet card, and someone please buy it..

Just for clarification, I already ordered a 6800 Ultra, so I'm not looking to trade. Thanks though. Make an offer, I'm open to suggestion (bribes too).

Hi
Ah man...Don't tempt me. If I had it, I'd offer you $350 to $400 in a heartbeat. Heck, your $450 isn't actually a bad deal either. Currently, the X850XT is a BTO only option. The X800XT Mac retail version goes for around $500 yet.

I so wish I could get this.

Good luck to you anyway.

Gotta put a hold on shipping this product out to anyone who wants it. Looks like it may be a bad card. I have Apple shipping me a new one this week. Thanks, still taking offers/dibs though!

Hi
Curious...Why do you believe it is 'bad'?

I'd buy it from you in a heartbeat, but I've already been spending too much money lately, and my parents would through a fit. But I move into the dorm in less than a month. Maybe we can talk then ;)

I'm getting tired of having a crappy Geforce FX 5200 running a 24" LCD...

Hi

It's causing some serious artifacting on my screen during Motion work. I was running some benchmarks for Rob at Barefeats and told him about it. He suggested the card was bad and to get a new one.

what's the retail price on the X850? I can't seem to find any place that sells the X850 model... just the X800

That's right, that's right...step right up folks and purchase one of the few if only X850 graphics cards in the wild. :D

Yes...it is the ATI X850XT that is only available via custom order in a Power Mac from Apple.
