    Where to Send Your Old Video Cards.........

    To me! I've decided to start the "Video Cards for a Needy Baxter Foundation." What should I do with these graphics cards now that I have this shiny new GTX 680? I know! I'll send them over to Baxter because he's running a paltry GTS250 and has never seen DCS run on High graphics settings, what a poor poor fellow, this will surely brighten his day! I will gladly write out a receipt for you so you can write them off on your taxes next year as a charitable donation......if uncle sam will accept that or not who knows, I'd probably have to register my new organization and run it by the big guy, but for now I'll certainly try. I will gladly take anything above a GTS250, which I think everyone here can out class by a long way, so in review.......If you are upgrading your computer no need to let your old cards sit around and collect dust, send me your cards! I will pay for shipping and give your card a new home where it will be loved and cared for!

    Ha! And here I was, thinking I would qualify for something like this with my GTX285.

    Dito, same Video Card from EVGA with watercooling cooler... (OC from EVGA)
    Would have a EVGA 780 MOBO with Waterblock and Q6600 (@3.0GHZ) collecting dust also...

    But the watercooling parts are probably a "dealbreaker"?

    Good luck

    Heck, I don't even know if I can change my video card; I've got a liquid-cooled Alienware and the card is in such a tight spot I think a neurosurgeon would balk at taking it out! Luckily it runs A-10C just great (sorry, Bax, not trying to hurt your feelings) so an upgrade isn't needed. Desired, but not needed.

    Sig updated.

    Finally running DCS in 2560x1600, and at serious fps with everything maxed out...the 680 is like a dream...

    If I wasn't keeping the 460's for my backup PC I'd mail them to you Baxter

    Not interested in your kidneys, but maybe keep your liver in a good shape Eddie.
    I might become interested overtime
