266MHz is very low for a 7600, don't expect regular 7600 performance from it
I think it's far better to look for a card on ebay or locally from a known brand
That's a good point that I had not even bothered checking . Normal clock is supposed to be 560 MHz for GPU and 1400 MHz effective (700MHz actual) for RAM , according to https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/geforce-7600-gt.c152
So at least that Ali Express 7600GT is essentially landfill filler .
EDIT : I know I keep repeating this to the point where I may almost sound like I have some vested interest (I do not, if anything I am actually encouraging people to bid against me), but I have had really good success with Central and Eastern European vendors (Hungary, Russia, Poland, for example, in no particular order). Prices were good and items were exactly as described . Shipping to Canada took a long time (distance and COVID-19 delays being factors), but that was to be expected . For some reason, when I need something retro and don't mind waiting, there often seems to be nice product in that part of the world and often much cheaper than in North America . I wonder if there are some large-scale recycling operations going in those places or if there is some other reason .
