I emailed BFG Tech for status and they said it should be shipped out today (Friday). I hope it did already. I just emailed them again to see if it indeed was shipped out earlier today. I will let everyone know when I receive it. I hope I will have more exciting news to tell rather than just, "Oh, it's the same model."

You won't get a 6200TC as it is PCI-e.
In my opinion, it would be a upgrade in some games but it is still an entry level card and I can't see BFG replacing your card in their warranty program with a 6200 AGP card, maybe a 6600.
Hopefully you will get a 6600GT...good luck! We will be watching with interest.

Hey all! Guess what? I got more than anyone of us thought I would get. I got a 6800 OC! WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nothing feels better than this. But my head didn't hit the ceiling because I'm too short to jump that high. Thanks to all for such great wishes. Now, all your wishes did come true and I got something worth more than I ever thought I would. Now, on to putting it on and see how it performs. Chow!!!!!!! WOOOHOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

I'm here to report how this replace card works. It's a mixed bag of candies, some sour, some sweet. I'm not sure if it's driver related or something else. What I can tell is if, for example, I click Start and Turn Off Computer, my whole screen fills with garbage lines across the whole screen. Or if I'm doing something like running RTHDRIBL to see how hot the GPU temp will go and I go to Display properties to check the temp, the whole screen does the same thing. If I exit out of temp screen, screen goes back to normal. It seems to do it when it multitask. If I do it again, same thing again. Haven't tried a different driver to see if it is driver related or not. I'm using driver 71.89. If anyone has experienced something like this before, please tell me what the solution is.

Hmm...PSU maybe? It may be a driver problem so try one of the earlier revisions.

Is 400-450W PSU big enough for this card? If it is, I guess it's not PSU's fault.

I guess it's the card. I tried it on two different PC (one based on Intel and the other based on AMD) with the same exact result. Tried different driver, same result. Well, at least I have the 6800OC now, so if I have to RMA it again, I know for sure I won't get anything less than that. Hey, maybe I was meant to get a 6800GT? HEheheheehhe...that will super!!!!!!!!!!

Just called BFG Tech earlier today. They gonna ship out another card to replace this one. They will include a prepaid label to ship this card back. Now, that's what I call Customer Service! BFG Tech rocks!
