I was playing some BF2 and my card started wigging out. I had weird colored lines coming off of everything going in different directions on the menu screens. When I was in the game I had a long spike sticking out of my gun which shot straight up. I tried reverting back to an older driver and nothing. I shut down and went to run some errons when I came back my boot up screen was filled with extra charecters and full lines missing and it hung when booting up after the windows screen. I took my daughters card out and it worked great. I put my card in my daughters computer and same issues. This card has never even been overclocked. I put a zalman cooler on it which lowered tempc by 15C. I am RMAing it back to EVGA due to it has a lifetime warrenty on it. I'm really bumbed out!:(

I'm sorry to hear that, but hes prolly right. You'll prolly get bumped upto like a 7900GTX or something. I have no idea.

Thanks guys for looking on the bright side. I'm going to box it up today and wait for EVGA's word.
Oh ya my daughters card sucks! It is a 6200 and BF2 has to be run on low everything, God help me!

Never overclocked ,well it could be the card just went bad, have you done driver cleaner and then install the ones that did work ,EVGA is good about RMA's as long as you register the card and have proof of purchase,like has been said you will more then likely get a better card.

They sent me back a new 7800GTX. I have no complaints it is an awesome card. Of course I'm in the middle east so I haven't seen it yet or been able to install it. Bummer! Got a new SKS sitting at home too I havn't seen.

Well I'm back from the desert and have installed my new 7800GTX. The only difference I see is that instead of the black EVGA cover over the fan and heat sink this one has a clear and silever cover. Any clues? Newer version maybe? Thanks.
