if you tell them that it came defective they will replace it, if you want a complete refund you will be charged the restocking fee

or thats hows its been before it may have changed

haha... I would go with EVGA or XFX but preferably evga. Its $530 at newegg and you get a lifetime warranty and you also get evga's step up plan.

I called them, and they said it will be full refund since its within 30 days of purchase.

And what exactly is the step up program? is it really worth it? From what I read its 90 days till when you can get the newer cards, but I herd the 9800 series or 8900 series isnt comming out till later next year...

Newegg.com - EVGA 768-P2-N831-AR GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

this one seems to be the best price right now.

Do you guys think it will fit in my case?
