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.

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.

hellonearthisman: have it new for $10 less than 2nd hand. $95.23

Incorrect, that is a different graphics card


That price is for this card



I am selling this more expensive card which is different

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.
