Any AOpen 6800GT card users? I would like to know your experiences with this card. Thanks.

Very happy with the performance, NOT with the cooler noise (but might be a bad one)

Just installed my new Aopen 6800GT card in place of the XFX GF4 Ti4200. I have noticed a few things about the card :

1.) No info about the vga card is displayed when the pc boots. My 4200 card used to show info about the bios version, the chip etc when boot began. But the 6800GT displays no info. How is this so?

2.) Even if I set the refresh rate to 85 Hz (1024x768 reso.), upon rebooting the refresh rate goes back to 60Hz. I didn't have this problem either with the 4200 card.

3.) The Aopen VGA installation disk supplied with the 6800GT says that this card is not supported!!!

4.) Even the manual and quick installtion guide is of some other model and not 6800GT .

Any other Aopen 6800 GT card owners have these problems?

My PNY 6800 GT doesn't display the BIOS on booting either. I've often wondered why too!
