I would if its crashing, the newer reloaded version of the card seems to have alot less defects. So chances are you'll end up with a good card.

hmm ok, but I dont want to wait a month, RMA takes forever and that means no pc for a month.

You should ask about this on their forums, as you'd get people that have been throught the process already. They do cross-ship for some, but they might require a deposit. I havn't been though evgas rma process, but I think it should be around 2 weeks. I read somewhere that they get it out in and out the door in 3 days, then shipping both ways, so figure 13 days with 3-5 day ground shipping both ways.

Really though ask about it in their forums, you'll get accurate answers from a dozen people that have been though this. Here the most you'll get is 2 or 3.

My EVGA runs great. I immediatley replaced the stock cooling on it.

It seems that EVGA had thermal sensor issues, but rectified them with a new release. For EVGA users, check the SKU of your card on the website. There is a listing of "Old" and "New" SKU's

How about XFX? Has anyone heard of the same issue?

Quirky card, kinda like the old Vector Twin Turbo's; don't know if its gonna take off like a wingless rocket, or explode into a fireball...

Sorry, I was only relating an issue with a similar card. I thought perhaps that maybe that could be your issue.

uhhh because tricky had some questionable problems with his evga7900 gt, and was using your thread. Yeah xfx killed their forums because they had too many people bad mouthing them on the forums, and I was refering tricky going to the evga forums for help.
