  1. Hi everyone, recently ive been needing a new computer badd an not just an upgrade as everything in this old thing is olddd. an because im in an extremely tight budget I have to shop on ebay, I have found what looks like a bargain for $450, an what looks like a mistake too, here is the link to the computer-> http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=013&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=230110691948&rd=1&rd=1
    "512MB Pci-e Geforce 6600 GTX" I noticed this an to me it looked like a mistake since i dnt no of any 6600gtx or a 512mb 6600, I thought the seller must have confused the card with the 7800 or 7900 gtx so i asked him for confirmation he said it wasn't, but being my stubborn self I couldn't let it go so i did some hefty research and found no "512MB Pci-e Geforce 6600 GTX" the closest i got was some 'prototype' 512mb geforce 6600, can someone please help me the seller isnt being very helpfull, also another thing i have to mention was how a system can be P4-3.0ghz and duocore!!! or is P4 representing the motherboard or sumfing??
    Thanx

    Hmmm yeh tru I think i might have to keep pestering him, his display/nickname thing looks a lil shifty too, oh well i hope he did make a mistake with the card that way i get a 7800 or 7900 for that price lol but i can never be too sure
