It started giving me BSOD and causing lock-ups and giving me nklddm or whatever stopped responding messages. So I RMA'd it and they're sending me back a GTX 260.
I feel like this is a significant downgrade, what do you guys think? I'm not trying to get a free upgrade, but I just don't want to lose anything other than the $500 price difference for what I originally paid for the card last year.
The GTX260 has higher bandwidth, higher shading power, more memory, better Purevideo engine, power saving modes, CUDA 1.3 support, ...
It's a nice deal man.
My story with XFX Europe really ended horrible:
I bought a "600 Euros 7900GTX XT 512MB", and after 6 months without gfx card, and 2 RMAs, they wanted to send me a "120 Euros 8600GT 256MB".
I never marry with any brand, but now i'm a happy eVGA customer, and i'm not returning to XFX Europe. They dunno how to deal with the enthusiast buyers.
