Ebay listing: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Zotac-GeForce-GTX-670-2GB-DDDR5-256-Bit-2x-DVI-Hdmi-DP-Graphics-Card/233384102280?hash=item3656c6c988:g:y64AAOSwIWBduG6m

Just wondering if it is a genuine listing and not a scam (because i feel for a fake card before)

Here's my motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. H61M-DS2 DVI
Any help is appreciated!


PS: If anyone knows a better card that fits my budget of 85 pounds ($110 for you americans) then feel free to link it in replies so i can have a look (I'm mainly looking for something that supports dx11 along with shadowplay) which is a recorded thing in geforce experience.

Looking on ebay you can find a GTX 1050ti or GTX 970 for slightly more, I would get one of those two over the 670. The 970 especially.

As to if its a scam, no way to tell. It looks legit but its also a 7 year old card so buyers beware.

If Shadowplay isnt 100% required, you can find RX 580s quite cheap, at least here in the US. AMD has there own recording stuff integrated as well.

Looks like a real one. A scammer probably wouldn't age and fray the label and add dust to the fan. And it looks like a Zotac 670 with that cooling solution. I'd definitely use some compressed air to clean out that GPU before intsalling. Is it a good deal? Harder to say. GPUs are high failure items and this is really old.

It looks real, but I would never recommend you a buy a 7 year old 670 with a blower cooler. It's going to run quite hot especially if the thermal paste has never been changed and could very well be near the end of it's life already.

As said above a 970 would be a much better choice.

As Richie notes, used 1050 Tis are around the same price and I'd prefer one. You can make the argument they're very slightly slower than the GTX 670, but any 1050 Ti is going to have several years less use than any GTX 670.

Also of note is that it doesn't take a lot to run into new 1050 Tis, with full warranties. For 20 quid it's absolutely worth it.

That's what my friend has been saying too, but i can't find any listing on it that fit my budget
I don't mean to sound needy but if anyone could help me find the 1050 ti on ebay for less than 85pounds ($110) i'd appreciate it very much https://www.ebay.co.uk/

I'm looking for something in my budget :/
 
Have you checked Facebook Marketplace?

Also as I said you may want to consider an AMD RX580, they are usually cheaper then Nvidia cards and the RX580 is quite powerful. You wont have Shadowplay but AMDs new 2020 driver software includes some nice game features for captures and streaming.
