Glad I could help out Goalieman.

Funny how things work out sometimes eh? Had it been another week, I'd have been moved out and you would have had to come across town for the card.

I always liked that Sapphire 3870, it was quite the card a few years ago and it absolutely ROCKED when I had the GFX Chilla on it. Even despite it's age, it still puts up some pretty good numbers in a decent system. But like I said, I had tested it thouroughly before boxing it up. My intention was to put it up on eBay for a bit more, but since we discovered you actually lived across the street, I didn't have ot go through all the trouble of shipping it! I am glad it Folds too! I'll have to look into that some time since I really don't know what it entails aside from helping out the research folks.

Cheers!

Lol yea weird. It is a very nice card. As for folding not sure how good it is but at least it is supported unlike the 5870. I'm not sure either why everyone is into folding I don't even really know what it does.

After exchanging PMs, Goalieman077 and I have determined that we are in fact...

N E I G H B O U R S !

Not, like "Oh... I only live across town from you" or "Hey! I am just three blocks over"... turns out that, if I cross the street and walk 20 meters, I am knocking at his front f'ing door!

Seriously... someone do the numbers on that one and tell me what the odds are.

LOL

Cheers!

I had something similar to that, I'm a big starcraft player and there's a guy I talk to/joke around with in my clan. After a couple weeks we found out that we both:
Live in nova scotia(this is like the 3-4th guy out of 1000's I've found in NS!)
We both work at Sobeys(woah, that's unlikely)
And we both work in the seafood department(holy sh*t!)

I hate getting bugged out electronics, my semi-new cell phone that was supposed to be a refurb, cost me $400(blew my notebook money T_T), will not connect on telus's data network. Calls are fine. I'm guessing this is why the original owner returned it. Oh well, at least I get a free NEW replacement
Hope you have better luck with your next card.
