Knock-off GTX 960 4GB only $43!!!

9757 ratings | 494547 views
While you can import a large number of knock-off Chinese goods that actually work as advertised... there are still some scams out there. But first... What am I drinking?!? I picked up a Bridgeport Brewing (Portland) Deep Cuts Oatmeal Stout. It's a limited edition brew featuring Cascade Hops and a very rich flavor. 6.0% and 35 IBU make it a very easy-drinker, and perfect for really any time of year. Get an ACTUAL deal on a GTX 1050 Ti here: https://amzn.to/2IInk07 As I'm becoming known as "the guy who reviewed knock-off motherboards", you've began to request I start importing other PC parts that seem too good to be true. And today, that's exactly what we received. I jumped onto WISH.com and said goodbye to $56 of my hard earned dollars (including shipping). Six weeks later, I had what was supposed to be a GTX 960 with 4GB of GDDR5. This card actually does POST, shows GTX 960 on the BIOS screen, and even accepts the GTX 960 drivers directly from nVidia. The only problem is this is NOT a GTX 960. Music: Spy Glass Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

You can actually Flash it again and it will work just fine!

I've seen one too many that were duds with the bios being fakes or nothing even coded in. But I'm getting a brand new RX580 8Gb for $400. Much cheaper than the Nvidia equivalent..

i found one for 60 euros and hope is not a scam so im not selling my gtx 1050 till i buy it and finf out its not a scan
TA THOMAS (8 days ago)
Why it crashes is because its not a real 960 and you installed the driver for the real 960

I would have also tried the drivers on the sketchy disk included, just to cover all bases as to what you paid for and were sent.

So would a dual 1070 SlI setup work? (With two MSI Armor 1070's)
Lucian Tabria (29 days ago)
Wait, this is where you're wrong, you can scam a 540 driver to install into a 960. I did it in 2009 with a 8600 m gs, changed driver with something I don't even remember always from 8000 series. I had actually need to get a new bios and unlock something. Not to mention it wasn't the result it claimed to be with 8600 faulty chips didn't made a difference I was expecting.
Craft Computing (28 days ago)
Yep, I know Phil has done it, as has OzTalksHW.
Lucian Tabria (29 days ago)
Craft Computing ok, I found a guy on Youtube that fixed bios same graphics card as yours from PhilsComputerLab: "Fix fake graphics cards from China ebay scammers with hardware bios flashing". Well this is a cool project to play around if you have one of these and then, good luck and have fun if you fix it. Let us know anyways
Craft Computing (29 days ago)
The problem is still in the reported memory. The card thinks it has 4GB of memory, and a driver install is not going to fix that.
werlak (30 days ago)
If you want a good deal, shop ebay. They regularly have 15-25% off purchase codes. Look for a reputable parts store and go crazy. Was able to get a lightly used GTX 1080 FE for $350 using this method. Works like a dream and saved me a couple hundred bucks on my PC upgrade.
Eric Siegel (30 days ago)
Can you reflash the card's BIOS to make it believe it's a GTS 450 (or whatever it really is)?
NameName (30 days ago)
My computer has a similar visual glitch to that sometimes. I'm not sire what causes it, but I know my graphics card isn't a wish bootleg
Bikes & Beans (30 days ago)
any way to correct the info the card sends the pc to get a cheapo crapo card like this running as it should with correct gpu and ram info? would probably run fine then??
Locke (1 month ago)
The little GTS 450 that couldn't.
DazGamerPlayzZ (1 month ago)
Thanks so much for explaining. I bought a 1050 and the box was just like the one in your video. I couldnt play games properly with it , fortnite works but whenever i get into the lobby it crashes, so i returned the gtx 1050 and had to get a 650 ti unfortunately.

tr1p1ea (1 month ago)
Why didn't you try the counterfeit drivers? They might have been correct for the actual gpu/ram present? Dodgy, of course.

Holy crap, hope my card ain't counterfeit i got a rx580 almost as soon as they came out, just before the GPUpocalypse and $20 below the average price at that time which was somewhere around 240 260. I didn't know they could do that good of a job counterfeiting them so as soon as my pc said rx580 i left it at that

Considering all the talking, that stout must be warm and taste like shit. What a waste.
Craft Computing (1 month ago)
If you think a stout tastes like shit at 60F, you have been drinking the wrong stouts. This might help: https://beerandbrewing.com/cold-beer-warm-beer-select-the-right-serving-temperature/

its 2018. anyone can be what they believe they can be.. if the card believes its a 960 its a 960.. you racist
sure you did.. i am worried about youtube community though
Craft Computing (1 month ago)
Don't worry, I got it.
cause this is youtube comment section and i know people will attack me for this comment i want to clarify that its a joke

I'm sorry. It was wrong of me to assume it wasn't.

It might have been fun to try the disk that came with it too see if there would have been a performance difference.

The most important thing your videos have taught me is never ever buy anything through Wish.com
Cutz McVascular (1 month ago)
Wish is trash.... It's a low budget Dhgate, except the stuff I buy from Dhgate actually works.
SoohNabis (1 month ago)
but the price are just going higher and higher each year.. 2016 i was able to get a 1050 2gb for 150$, today it's 190$ 2 years later.. when normaly 2 years later, there's new card, so the older come cheaper.. but it's not the case.. 2014 i was able to get 8gb of Ram for 70$, today it's 160$.. ridiculous.

Lance Elliott (1 month ago)
Know it's pointless. But is it possible to get the card to function as a 450 again?
Craft Computing (1 month ago)
Technically possible, but more involved than just flashing a new BIOS via NVFlash. You need to reset the ram value in the firmware. Phil's Computer Lab actually went down that path with a card and got it working.

You look like Cody from Cody’s Lab

People are like isn’t that a glitch?

I'd be curious to see what happens if you flash the card to the correct specs.

Ur able to get used 960s for about $70 and thats by far a better option
onegrapefruitlover (1 month ago)
What would happen if you installed the provided drivers? Knock off card with knock off drivers could be interesting
Mike Ward (1 month ago)
If it's bios has been flashed to believe that it's a 960 can it not be flashed to what it is?
Craft Computing (1 month ago)
It's a bit more involved since the memory capacity has been spoofed. It's possible, but really not worth the effort.
Mike D (1 month ago)
You could always flash the correct vbios to the card. That'd get you a functional card at least.
Iordan Chis (1 month ago)
What did you do with the card? Could you use it? Get a proper driver for it? Refurbish it? I liked when you went into detail about the components, I found that interesting.
justin r (1 month ago)
should do a video on flashing the gts450 bios on to the card and see if it works fine after with the corect bios and settings for it

I was about to buy it, thanks! :D

jesus dude don't you know what a video recorder is? I hate it when people use a camera to record a screen like what the hell are we in 2010 or smth?? also yeah don't buy online...only local lol
BilisNegra (1 month ago)
I'm now fearing the card I bought a couple of days ago off ebay will be most probably a similar knockoff case. And i won't be getting it till one month from now. I'm feeling so frustrated.
Craft Computing (1 month ago)
If it looked like this, it's likely a knockoff. eBay and PayPal should protect you if it is a fake. It just might take some convincing.
Kobra (1 month ago)
I was looking for a budget card under 100 and I was like no way this is possible and I was right and have no regrets not buying it
ps3master72 (1 month ago)
I saw a wish ad with a $1900 GTX 1080 and a $600 GTX 1050ti. So, I guess wish is not a great place for PC parts.

When arguing with people, which I'm sure you do quite frequently, do you present your side in a concise, logical manner? Or do you just try to yell louder than the other person?
