Hi all,

If I was to supply three serial numbers from three identical 7970 Lightnings, could someone tell me how old they were?

Reason I ask, I purchased two 7970 Lightnings 4 months ago, brand new and then bought a third a couple of months later (second hand).

I want to sell one 7970, the second hand one but can't decifer which one is which!

Any idea how I could tell the age? Do the SN's give away anything?

Call MSI and ask. usually SN's have a manufacturer date attached to them.

why are u wondering the age of the unit. if you plan on selling them just tell them this one is second hard and unforunately i dont know how long the other person had the card for but i only had it for " this long " 


As long as your price is resonable the person dosnt care the age of the card.
