I set up a RMA with evga, and since holiday sales were going on I treated myself. I hope the card is actually dead and I am not wasting my money shipping it to them. So if anyone is in the market for anything let me know, I'll have some sort of refurb in a couple of weeks.
GTX 460 SC
Should be fun later this week.
Nice card and a great price! It's nice to treat oneself every now and then...:)
I probably treat myself a little to often, but I hope to enjoy it for a couple years, until it dies anyway.
A couple of years is all we can expect from a video card before it dies or becomes obsolete.Computer upgrades(video cards,cpu's,ram etc) used to be a bit of an obsession for me,until I finally realized,what's the point.You can't keep up with the latest and fastest parts. One day it's hot,the next month it's not.I think I'll try knives for a while....
I put in the new card last night and viola a working system again. Not a big jump in performance but a little boost none the less. 240 Shig with it to keep on topic. Mahogany board as well.
Tristan, were you able to find a replacement switch? My computer has been acting up, sometimes I have to press the power button more than once to get it to stay on, sometimes it lights up and spins the fan a couple of seconds then goes off unless I press it again. I have no idea where to get a replacement switch. And Oh yeah, I had to replace the video card on it a few months back.
