This superb, durable graphics card is used but functions like new! I test it right before packaging and shipping. I hate to see it go, but I no longer have any use for it. It kind of feels to be the very same card as the XFX version that I have (BioStar as an alternative of XFX).
There is no pci-e power connection. That may be how it used to be designed by the manufacturer, like a large number of similar cards. The power is received through the motherboard. This can be a good feature!
