And what the fuck do you expect us to do about it? You bought it, you contact the seller.

Only thing to do is report it to eBay I guess. Shouldn't have fallen for that dude, NVidia reference edition cards have shrouds that look like this: Related image

What website did you buy it from? eBay has purchase protection.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Well if it was really 50$ like the article you linked says, not really a huge blow to your wallet. Also you could try getting a refund https://www.wish.com/return_policy?&hide_login_modal=true

Wish was designed by the people who make knock offs and scam listings specifically to be a platform where they can get away with it because their customer protection is designed to be terrible.

Using wish at all is a 0 IQ move

forgot about that

It's going to be a 450 or 450ti. You can try to flash it with the proper bios as some YouTubers have done and use it for a potato build. Fwiw nothing newer than a 960 will have VGA. Dead giveaway.
