Default Looking for HD3470 video card for HTPC

I can't find a new one anywhere, so I'll buy used if someone has one they would like to be rid of.

I'd prefer one with a blue PCB to match my mobo. At this point I can't be too picky though.

Alternately, I'll consider a 3450 if the price is right.

That's a 3450. I'm looking for a 3470. I said I'd consider a used 3450 if it were cheap enough.

My reasons for wanting a 3470 specifically is that I'm trying to do Hybrid Crossfire and I want to make the most of it. Only 2400 and 34X0 will work, apparently.

I have tried hybrid Crossfire and it is a complete waste of time. It did nothing to improve graphics speed/power and it only caused me more incompatibilities with software/games.

The reviews I've read indicated anywhere between 40 and 70% improvement, depending on the title. What titles did you have trouble with?

Half Life 2 EP1 & 2, Trackmania, Need For Speed pro Street and a few others. I did use a HD3450 so maybe that was my issue, but I have a hard time believing 40-70%. I could be wrong, of course, but just be careful as to what you expect.
