A sympathetic vendor
I talked to my vendor and he said he would take back the card and refund any difference in price from what I paid and what a new card is worth now. Truely a nice guy. NS Technology has Prolink's Pixelview Ti4200 64MB TV-out card for $13 less than what I paid a month or so ago for the Gainward. Better still, this card has seen overclocking in the 300/600Mhz range so I might even end up with a little more horsepower.
So, the only thing I have gleened from this experience is this vendor is top notch. Cheers to Walter at NS Tech.
