    Look on both sides for any identifying words or an fcc number.

    Then how is he supposed to sell it without knowing what card it is? Tell him to look for a fcc id number and look it up online. But there has to be some identification on the card.

    If I could be told what brand it is, Nvida or Intel, that would help some.

    Do you think its a higher-end card since it has heatsinks and a fan?

    I'm guessing its an Nvidia card and its definately not gonna be high end. probably a 5200/6200 or possibly lower.

    Hmmm

    To me, it looks very simmilar to a Geforce 3:

    Definitely an old card and probably not worth buying to upgrade. There are much better AGP cards to be had for very cheap.

    Wow, that's almost the exact same card, minus the DVI port. (perhaps a different revision or card) good job :good:

    Im guessing by the looks of it, its a Nvidia Geforce 6200 256MB. It looks the same & it is an old card, doesn't look like an ATI card.

    I looked up Nvida Geforce3 and thats the card Its minus a DVI port, thats ok though, my monitor is VGA only.

    I won it for $4.80, which is all the money I have at the time, I recently lost my job.

    Acording to the web, it seems to be a half-way-decent card.

    The current onboard card I have cant process 1080p video. I am sure this card should.

    It also has a GPU that can be overclocked.

    I doubt whatever video card that is can handle 1080p, its too old.
