Do you want a Nvidia GeForce4 Ti graphics processor enough to pay almost US$3,000 for it? Someone did.

Nvidia has raised that amount of moolah from the sale of its GeForce4 Ti 4600 GPU in a fund auction held on eBay to raise funds for the Children’s Health Council. The eBay auction winners are among the first consumers to own the powerful GeForce4 Ti GPU, which was announced by Nvidia last month.
Three limited-edition charity packs featuring the GeForce4 Ti 4600 were auctioned off, each raising winning bids of $2800, $2700 and $2500 — selling prices seven times higher than the average retail price. Each pack included a GeForce4 Ti 4600 add-in card, a carrying case autographed by Nvidia CEO Jen Hsun-Huang, a demo CD and t-shirt.
On Feb. 6, Apple announced that the GeForce4 Titanium will be available in the new Power Mac G4 as both a build-to-order option and a US$399 standalone card. The cards are due for Mac users any time now. The GeForce4 Titanium can process 87 million triangles per second and 4.9 billion textured pixels per second to perform over 1.23 trillion operations per second.
