XFX is no good. they are bad, have the highest percentage of DOA and dying GFX cards.

do a search of XFX, your bound to find a million things bad about it

you could have went to order status, if this was before your credit card was charged, and hit void. and it will void it. OR once you get it send it back to newegg for a refund you have to pay a 15% restocking fee. but thats no big. then just buy the eVGA 6600gT which is way better

I had an older card by xfx and it worked great,

but I now use evga (6600gt), and it blew me away when I first got it...

I'm sure you will be happy with it
