Well, I finallly got a replacement card. Not exactly what I had in mind, but with me not getting a tax return this year, I have to make due. I think it'll be an OK card and hell, would be a cheap SLI setup, if I decided to do that in the near future. Plus, I got it dirt cheap from CraigsList, so what the hell. If and when I do upgrade, I'll keep this as a back-up. I'll have to test it out this weekend on my wife's computer, as I'm not yet able to do so on my own rig. Anyways, here it is;

My experience with XFX Europe was horrible:

Yeah, I know the Fatal1ty name jacks the price up and all, but like I said, I didn't buy it new. Matter of fact, only cost me $25 out of pocket. :D It's not going to be my permanent card. It's just a "to get me by for the time being" card. Not to mention a it'll make a good back-up for future repairs/replacements, if needed. *sigh* :(

What a ludicrous name... most likely Mr. Fatality would never touch such a low-end card like the 8500gt :POKE:

However, still better than their usual way beyond retarded "dog" scheme :barf:

That's one thing I don't get. Why is his name on the 8500 card, but on the higher-end sound cards? Doesn't make sense. I'm in no way a fan of him, I actually can't stand the guy, but like I said, I didn't buy it new and it only cost me $25 for a practically brand new card. When you're poor, you get what you can. ;)

Well with my experience with the 8500GT I pretty much ran it on 3dmark06 got a 2012 score. Overclocked the f#%% out of it and managed to get 2369. Pretty crappy card though.. I returned and paid 10 dollars more for a 8600GT EVGA!!

Yeah, I don't really expect to game much with it. I hope to have a 8800 GT in a couple of months, if not sooner.

How can you not stand a guy you have and probably never will meet.......because he has a minor lisp?

humm, dunno... got his ugly mug on my soundcard box, don't care much for that. Though I like the red led F on the actual sound card, nice touch.

... I saw a fatal1ty mouse in the store one day... darn odd design.

Too bad it was wasted on such a crappy card.

I was plagued with the static noise bug from day one and was really mad about that (as I am a musician and I do work alot with music). But it's been gone since last summer now, and it still works with the new hardware upgrades i did last week. So.. except for the static noise thing in the past Im happy with it.
