hate to do this because he seems like a really nice guy and all, and he apparently was just sicker than a dog and in this hospital. i paid him something like 1150-1170 for a computer in mid january and asked him to hold it until feb 15th because i was moving and would be at a new address (didnt want the new toy around while i had **** to get taken care of, plus itd just be one more thing to move)
he said cool, he needed the time to buy himself a laptop anyway, everything seems cool until about the 20th of feb and im like wheres my computer. after pm's back and forth, him telling me several times it had shipped and he would get me the tracking number but never sending it, it finally went out 3 days ago. well i got it today, and everything is cool EXCEPT rather than the sapphire ati x800 pro video card that was stated was in it (250 dollar video card, plus something like 40 bucks for the stated zalman cooler) theres a gigabyte x1300 pro (70 dollar video card). at first, i thought maybe he just didnt know what the difference was, but upon closer inspection i find a sapphire sticker on the top of the case, and find (uninstalled) x800 pro drivers on the hard drive (which had not been properly formated as promised, and had a fresh, although unactivated with no key # copy of windows)
thats just ****ing shady. you knew i bought the computer for gaming. did you honestly think i wouldnt know the difference between an x1300 and a 800? you insult my intelligence, and outright **** me off after taking so long with the shipping, which i was prepared to let go without a negative feedback thread. to make this right, you either need to refund me about 150 dollars, which you should be doing anyway for the delay on the shipping, or you need to send me the video card that i bought.
