You still didn't answer the question as to where you are located re the
original post etc. And you didn't add any of the post you are replying
to, so I'll add it here for you:

Nobody here knows if you live in Turkey, Brazil, Maine, London, etc.,
etc. Nobody here knows what you've tried (except in this latest response
from you), nobody here knows the specs of your machine or even which
version of Ubuntu you have installed.

So I guess the question at this point is: do you still need a used video
card, or do you actually need assistance with one of the three video
cards you've now told us you tried?
