who wants to buy my 580 GTX lol

Post#1 » 06 Oct 2011, 13:43

I bought a new 120hz monitor which only has HDMI and DisplayPort
Displayport does 120hz
HDMI port doesn't do 120hz

My graphics card 580 GTX has no DisplayPort ....

My options are:
1) get rid of the monitor (it's too sexy to get rid of)
2) Change video cards

lol, will sell for $500 and pay for shipping. ^_^

I am in the market for a new GPU actually Secro, but thats a bit rich for my blood.

Work out a better price and we can deal, since you can buy them brand new for that price :)

What brand is it?

I'd probably buy the same one again but the gainward one so it has DP port on it.

cant you jsut SLI them and have the display port one as the master card? Sure your case may feel like having a hair dryer at your feet but think of the FPS!

(dont know anything about SLI, using crossfire myself)
