    When you say the mini hdmi port is temperamental do you mean its faulty?

    Are you prepared to post first since you have virtually no feedback?

    faulty yes but still works, mini hdmi connectors are to weak imo, the hdmi lead puts to much strain on it. DVI to HDMI is solid though.

    Would you be happy with half payment up front and half on receipt of working card? If so I will offer £105 inc delivery.

    Please let me know if you are happy with these terms, even if you want to hold on the pricing.

    Also can you post some pics of the actual card as opposed to a marketing pic?

    I would be happy with the arrangement above, I am travelling until Fri evening though.

    I can do PPG on the go though, so if you are willing to accept my offer, let's move to PM.

    Sorry for the late update to the thread. We agreed on the terms above and exchanged details over PM. Card arrived this morning after making an initial payment of £55.

    Unfortunately, the card is not working properly on my system. It may be a driver issue, as I was able to get it running properly a couple of times, but each time requiring a clean driver install for every boot cycle.

    I have not been able to find a fix after trying for a couple of hours. 1080 jawbreaker has kept up with comms and has offered to send a return label and refund.

    So, while it is unfortunate that this has fallen through, I will be leaving good feedback after everything is concluded as I believe the seller has been honest. It may not be purely a hardware issue, but could be a configuration/driver issue (having researched nvidia drivers, several issues seem to have occurred over the last several releases).

    On my side, I have made effort to try several solutions, having reseated the card and re-checked the power connections as well as trying different driver versions on clean installs each time.

    @1080 jawbreaker - Hi, was just wondering whether this will be back up for sale if not already gone to another buyer that is?.. If not gone to another home and is still up for sale, I would be interested in trying to get it working in my cousin's PC as he only rocking an HD5770 in it!.. But, would you accept £95 inc cheapest delivery/postage you would use, as that is really all he has spare to spend on an upgrade ( he doesn't work and looks after his mum who has some form of neck cancer )?.. It'll help him out very dearly!.. Thanks!..

    If the return/refund has been completed with Sable and the item is no longer for sale please close the thread.
    Click 'thread tools' then 'archive this thread'.
