Hello there, interesting issue that everyone has with this card in which your computer wont boot up with a DVI to HDMI connection plugged in. The only way to get passed this issue is by unplugging the HDMI for around 30 seconds then after its booted plugging it back in; Ive been doing this for about 5 months but lately it has been getting annoying for me.

Anyway I would like to see if I can trade my EVGA 8800 GTS 640GB for something = or less than my card. I would prefer a 8800 GT but would be willing to spend some extra money on top of the card if someone has something better. :)

Like I said there nothing wrong with the card and works great with the exception that it cant boot up with HDMI installed.

Be careful, there may be no WTT rule or something.
With the 8800GTS, I also dont know what to do with mine. The older 8800GTS 640 cards are no real good with newer games on higher res and get hot as f*ck to use as a physx card.

Yeah might be better to try to sell locally. Seems like there's been a few of these on this site lately. Maybe you could try a DVI to HDMI cable though. I used one on my 8800 GTS for years and it worked fine. They are very cheap.

Yeah that's what I am doing with the DVI to HDMI cable which is causing the issue.

O well lol I think i might as well buy a hdmi switch box, that will solve the issue of having the unplug it every time.
