  1. The economy is dreadful, I have seen a lot more folks who have older comps with IGP's and want to game, but either money is tight ,or a new PSU is needed making it cost prohibitive. My family and I have been fortunate through this s****y economy . So if you live in the states and can make use of a HD 4830 or a HD 3650. PM me with your address and I'll send it to You. Both will run on modest PSU's

    hmmm, well i could use a spare PCIe adapter as a test unit in my shop... but that would be greedy and i think others probably need them more. if you don't get any hits after several weeks i'd gladly take 'em off your hands though, but you could probably just donate them locally.

    I'm surprised nobody has claimed these. I'm going to rename your thread so it gets a little more attention.

    This is a great idea. Hope someone gets these with good use. I thought about giving stuff away here but I still need to go through my box of anti static bags of old stuff.

    Me to. :)

    In said spirit I've now changed mine to free as well; in case we have any UK members after a HD3650 as well, I'll give mine away to a good home.

    P.S. Sorry for the blatant post hi-jack, but I didn't think you'd mind considering we're both on different continents. :)

    I have to assume this is because the population of users are not allowed to post here, so it's limited to a few hundred members, wait, that's still a lot of people :)

    The 4830 has been spoken for. The 3650 is still available.

    Darn, I wish I had been around this week! A 4830 would run circles around my current card. Do you know how the 3650 would compare? I have not seen any reviews that include both.

    in this benchmark the 3650 beats up on the GT 8600 pretty good.
