Have you at least tried this Albo?

I do know that some of the latest updates for Team Fortress 2 have been causing people a lot of FPS and lag issues. It started really showing up back in the Mannconomy Update, and seems to be claiming more and more victims with each update since.

I don't know about the other games, but TF2 has definitely been having some issues lately.

Wow XFX Support is pretty amazing.
The phone line was shut down for like 5 days straight, but the internet service was great. They said that the form I filled out was only for purchases through the XFX site, so they told me to fill out a support ticket. I did that, and within 2 minutes, someone responded.

They said that I did the registering on May 12, 2009. But I bought my card on December 15, 2008. So it seems that I registered too late, I had no idea I needed to register within a month of buying it. They have yet to respond, as I JUST sent in the reply, but I'm positive he will say no go.

Looks like I'm in the market for a new video card. I have to wait 3 weeks though, that's when my next pay check comes. :/

Right.

I'm probably going to go with an EVGA 460 GTX.

The 500 series would be bottled by everything else in my rig, lol. Plus I game at 1280 x 1024, so that would be an overkill.

I'm not sure if I should spend $25 more for lifetime warranty, over the 2 year limited.

EVGA 460 GTX with Lifetime

EVGA 460 GTX with 2 Year

Oh ****.. They said that they authorized my RMA? They gave me the address and number and all this ****. How? Does this mean I'm good, or could they test it, and make me pay for it?

It means you send them your old gpu and they send you a new one of equivalent speed.
