Dont let 'em get away with it man. Keep on 'em, emails, calling, w/e you gotta do. Just do it. Dont know if installing it would be a good idea if you're looking for a refund... lol, though i know watching the box sitting there can get pretty bad. Just hold back, It might be worth it, or around $100 lol

Lightbulb Re: am i gettin ripped off?

hahaha.. ya.. that box it mighty compelling..
i don't think that i want a refund.. one thing is that stores here don't really have good vid cards for good prices.. Staples has nothing better than 5200s.. other stores charge too much and stuff..
so i am pretty much forced to order most of my parts..
mmm.. want to use it in tonights game... mmmmm... hehe.. we play UT2004 almost every night.. but now it's the weekend and stuff...

This is virtually the same speed (about 3-5% slower depending on the app) as what you received for $186 (yours is 400/850, this one is 390/700, otherwise they are the same). I wouldn't pay more than $200 for a 5900NU, because the minimal speed difference between it and the 5900XT is not worth more than $15.

welp - the deed is done..

haha..
got the non-ultra installed and havin a ton of fun with it already..
what i see now is that although this card kicks my old card's ass - the difference goes unnoticed except for the DX9..
i just decided that all the extra trouble and cost wasnt worth waitin through..
i will still try to get a price reduction out of them - sorry if i let some of you down...

Hmm... i've seen some people complaining of a grating like sound coming from their chipset or their CPU, but nothin from their videocard.... however - i think i remember reading something about that happening with geforce cards, i'll look into it and i'll get back to you

Sure that sound isn't coming from your speakers? I've heard wierd interference like that when I scrolled up and down in windows before. That was back when I had a GF2 Ultra though, and it was a POS. Ofcourse, you can maybe lay the blame on my original SB Live there and not the video card.

some people who had similar problem resolved it by unticking the IE\properties\advanced "use smooth scrolling" option ??
