Thanks Hydra, I will have a look but on ebay it is somewhere north of 130 USD plus shipping (and used). I do not know if they had already been bricked and survived by reballing or else. So that is a tough issue. And about the video mem, I am pretty sure it is because of that since when I start OCCT the card starts at around 120 fps but then suddenly it crashes as soon as the memory consumption kicks in. That was the only indicator of bad vram.
