Asustek EN8600GT Silent 512MB GDDR3 PCI-E HDTV HDCP 1080P

Opened box, then decided not to install the card. NZ Warranty transferable and valid till September 2009. Save some money and buy my card, i can even give you advice on setting up your HTPC.

Card comes with all the usual manufacturer included accessories.

Graphics Engine GeForce 8600GT
Video Memory 512MB DDR3
Engine Clock 540MHz
Memory Clock 1.4GHz (700MHz DDR3)
Memory Interface 128-bit
Max Resolution Up to 3840 x 2400
Bus Standard PCI Express X16
VGA Output YES, via DVI to VGA Adapter

TV Output YES, via S-Video to Composite
DVI Output DVI-I
Dual DVI Output YES
HDCP Support YES
Adapter/Cable Bundled DVI to VGA adapter
HDTV-out cable
Software Bundled ASUS Utilities & Driver

This graphics card is recommended by HTPC builders as it supports hardware acceleration of h264/vc1 (freeview HDTV signals and 1080P movies and bluray discs)

Note - includes component cable adaptor box for HiDef LCD TVs. Can also use optional DVI-HDMI adaptor ($9 on trademe) for HDMI.

I am selling this more expensive card which is different

http://www.sigmapconline.co.nz/product_info.php?products_id=4163

Price at the shop you suggested is
$140 + $16.87 for postage to SI = $156.87





Also, I wouldn't consider it 2nd hand as it hasn't been used.
