This is not the first time I've heard this.
BFG is #1 for sure. :) (snowlol)

Jeez, why didn't they just build him a new computer while they're at it :rolleyes: . Boy that guy is lucky, hope he likes his new card :) . Man, and I thought the deal I got for MY 6800 was good.

isn't that because 6800gt is today's rough equivalent of what 5900u was a year or 2 ago? when did he buy 5900u?

No, I wouldn't go quite that far ;) It probably just because the 5900u is no longer being produced, or it was simply out of stock.

Yeah, that's about it, but it's still EXTREMELY strange that they would replace such an outdated one with such a more powerful one (actually, wouldn't the 6800u be closer to the 5900u?). Even a 6600gt is more powerful than an fx5900, but I guess they figured customer satisfaction was worth the loss in revenue. Hmm...actually my new 6800 has this wierd crackling problem when I scroll a webpage or play games...I should wait until they discontinue it and see if they give me a 6800gt in return (xmasgrin)

They had to give him a 256mb card.
The 5900U was top card 10-12 months ago.
I would have made them give me a GT to
if they did not have a 5900U or 5950 to replace it with.

Well that's good news for BFG owners, if their 6800gt/u croaks in a year or two, they'll get the latest and the greatest for free ! (xmassign2
