Im in the process of building a basic system to give a friends son using mostly spare parts that I have lying around but I need a PCI-e Graphics Card that can do some basic gaming.

The system is a Core 2 Quad so something of similar era (9800GT or early GTX) would be great.

Let me know what you have and how much you want.

I'm based in Auckland but happy to pay for shipping on the right card.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

I have a Gigabyte GTX 660Ti that can run most things, TradeMe seems to go for about the $140-150 range, I can let it go for $120?
Been using it until recently (and have had it for about 3 years).
Plays most games fine, but the most recent games will need to be lowered down in quality a bit but not really an issue. Just wanted something recent and upgraded to a GTX 970.
Based in Auckland also.

I might have a 9800GTX sitting in the garage, will check tonight and let you know.


Reqs dual PCI-E power though, so a decent PSU required.
