I'm taking mine back today! If it won't install, it's no use to you.

How come no one replies come one Nvidia i thought you had good support or should i send my card back EH???
mabey i should get an ATI next time so it WORKS
and i will get an ATI if i don't get support soon.

I have tried Nvidias .run file nearly 10 times and when i set the driver to "nvidia" as i was told to do in the XF86Config file and then the hole rig just chrashes EVERY TIME. Nvidia should not sell chips it can't support

sorry for getting mad

well, without complete error messages and a list of things you tried, it is not easy to help you.

If you are not able to get the plain easy nvidia installation to a success, what do you think, will happen, if you meet the not so easy ATI-installation?

Without reading and error-messages, you won't find help anywhere.
