Default ATI X1650 Pro 1 GB ???

I am looking to buy a 1GB ATI vid card and saw this on ebay.
ATI X1650PRO 1 GB DDR2 PCI-E on eBay.ca (item 130459537686 end time 04-Dec-10 19:24:25 EST)

All the research I have done tells me there is only a 256mb and 512mb versions of it.

Is this guy pulling my leg or is there a 1GB X1650 Pro ?

Definitely not worth it. Why do you want a used card? You should be able to get a new card for around that price with the same or better performance if you wait for a sale. A quick look at the tomshardware (I know not the best site) hierarchy of graphics cards shows an hd 4650 as faster than a x1650 so keep an eye out for that or better.

I agree with ^ .. why would you even consider buying an ancient 1650 for?

I have an old motherboard and I am putting some old parts together for work.
It does not have to fancy.
I think this is a way better deal

5450 is new, but definitely not a gaming card (not as fast as a 4650/x1650). How old of a motherboard are you talking about? Are you sure it has a PCI-E slot and not an AGP slot for the graphics card?

Its a ASUS M2N-E so it takes pci-e
I was looking for 1GB not 512mb cards.
And I don't need it to play New Vegas on it, thats what this is for:
