Title: On ebay: AGP Geforce Ti 4600 & Radeon 9800 Pro
Post by: sos_mac on August 07, 2022, 03:04:06 PM
Some really powerful AGP cards for sale on ebay right now....for really powerful prices:

Geforce 4600 Ti AGP - the best OS9 card you can buy, for $599 USD:

And a couple of 9800 Pro's - the more expensive of which could be yours for a cool $1699 USD. Perfect AGP card for OSX, and I presume would work OK for 2D in OS9:

Cashed up? Won the lottery? Got a tax rebate burning a hole in your wallet? Upgrade your AGP vid card today!

ps not a buyer or seller or in any way with an interest in these, other than noting the incredibly high prices these are now going for.

i sometimes wonder if this kind of clowns actually ever sell anything.

he wants 600 bucks for a geforce, 280 for a keyboard, 350 for a floppy drive and 30 for a mac mini power cable.

30 euro is what you usually pay for a complete G4 or core2duo mini package including everything, and iŽd say anyone who pays more than 20 bucks for a keyboard - or mabye 35 if it is new - must have even more mental health problems than such sellers do.

if i had 600 bucks left to upgrade to a ti, i would rather pay a forum member to solder me one!
 
 
i recently saw an offer for a porsche cayman, 21 years old, no extras, for 35,000 euro, right beside another ad for exactly the same type of car, which was offered for a more realistic 4800.

i consider such offers an attempted fraud.

Me? No. I'm not a bot - it just so happened to be my first post, having picked up a MDD G4 (1Ghz) a couple of weeks ago, with the sole purpose of having an OS9-bootable machine.

Since the 9000 Pro the machine came with has bad graphics artefacts, I've been desperately searching ebay for a card capable of 3D acceleration in OS9, and came across the cards above (and these forums!). I've been fortunate to pick up an 8500 in the meantime for a *much* lower price than the cards above, thankfully.
