    Wanted PC Graphics card.

    Looking for a graphics card for a PC, as the current one a Radeon HD 5700 is showing it's age, preferably 4 gig, PCI Express, not looking to spend mega bucks.

    What have you?

    Thanks for looking.

    I think that sounds like the card I have or I might have the 5800 not sure. Luckily I don't game much but I know what you mean, the odd time I try it is really showing its age and it sounds like a hovercraft too :-)

    I keep eye balling GPU's from these chinese sites but haven't jumped yet. Not sure how genuine they would be ?!?!?

    Had a look in CEX the other day but they take the piss in my local town, its cheap for RAM, but HDD's and GPU are priced silly imho

    My concern would be if they have just taken for example a GTX 1020 and flashed the firmware to appear as a GTX 1050. I believe this is possible for those in the know.
    Not saying that is the case here or at all from China, but I'm a paranoid twat.

    Would you be able to prove it??? Benchmarks would obviously not reflect the correct card, but they make no claims of benchmarks just model numbers ;-)

    I suppose if you see a card for sale showing 3dmark scores then you could open ebay dispute if they don't come close lol


    Edit: Its very tempting though at that price pmsl

    Yeah that is a worry pal, hopefully someone on here will have something they don't use anymore.

    Thanks to ilscuro

    Personally, i would grab the Ebay card knowing its a fake then make a refund claim. High chance you'll just get refunded and keep the card
    Btw, looks like the 1050 Chinese ones are in reality 650Ti
