Buying a PCI bus card on Craigslist

 Here's a question that I can't find an answer to. I've found a PCI bus card (TV tuner) on Craigslist that I want to buy. The seller says that they've got rid of their PC and now have a Mac and so don't have a need for this card. How can I find out if this card is working without lugging a PC around to his house and installing it then and there before buying it?


  1. The basic answer is you can't; it's time for the leap of faith. Either it works or it doesn't.

  2. I'm thinking of asking the guy to come around and install it with me so I can see then and there that it'll work...
