Hmmm thanks for your guys input I really do appreciate it. I have decided since my card is almost 1.5 years old ( around december ) I will RMA it around december and just pray they don't give me a refurbished one ( the tech guy assured me they don't cause they don't have any refurbished stacks to give out when people RMA it ). Isn't a 9800 gtx more powerful then a 8800 gtx?

Also do you guys think this heat build up is due to the fan dying or ATI tool becoming more unreliable? I'll definately try out the furmark, whats everyone elses experience with ATI tool artifact scanning so far?

yes the 9800gtx+ is faster than the 880gtx, its tremendous clockspeeds make up for its memory bus and memory.... look up some benchmarks on them... and your only on 1680x1050 anyway... so the 9800 is more beneficial

well any 9 series generation card would be happy with me ( especially since both the gtx260 and 9800 gtx are better ), since they use less power and run cooler right? My card gets 80-90 celcius at load sometimes, although I admit my room is abnormally hot and doesn't have good air flow ( I know its not the wiring or dust cause ive spent countless hours addressing both )

8800GTX's arent worth very much anymore.

Brand new 8800 Ultras are priced at $199. I could get a used 8800GTX for around $125.

Im sure a replacement would most likely be the 9800GTX/GTX+.

wow interesting thats a great deal xfx offered you...I can only hope evga offers those kind of deals. Whats the exact diff between a 8800 gtx and a 9800 gtx on the chart since their so close? Is the 9 series card that much more efficient with temps and energy usage?

BTW anyone try out the ATI tool artifact scanner? Now when I try it on my card which idles at 65 celcius I get errors within the first 5 secodns even though my card is only 73 celcius by that time ( gets up to 95 celcius with full load ), this doesn't make too much sense to me...how can it artifact so quickly? Especially when the other night it completed 30 minutes of no errors when it was hotter ( all these tests are at stock settings )
