how about the Powersupply issues ? did you think is
a smart choice buying a good 400+watts +new power for $100-$200 dollars ,the radeon9700 for $400 .?
Do you remember the launch of the oringal GF? How many issues they had one some AMD systems. Turned out those mobos were not following specs. Now we have the same thing with some of the power supplies not being able to maintaine their 12/5 volt ratings. Funny sounds like the same issue here. Ironic no?
