whyle you rma your left with out a card, atleast eith 2 3870's your left with a card while the other gets rma'd .as to the 7950gw2 it used 2 pcb yes, but the 3870x2 worcks in the same method exept its using a longer pcb instead of 2 regular sized ones, and the 3870x2 is two gpus slaped onto the same pcb, its not one duel core gpu, so it most likely works in the same maner as the 7950gw2.

ill survive a week without a computer dude. Point is whatever it is, if its broke, replace with new one that works. I doubt they are more suspectable to DOA then anything else.

i know its not dualcore like cpus man give me some credit. dual does actually mean two aswell.

um clearly youve never rma'd anything have you, it takes much more then a week, i rma'd my 7900gt 3 times finaly i got a 7950 gt the third time for free, anyway each time it took well over a month, i had to end up spending liek 100$ on a ****** video card that was just capable of runing bf2142. if you think it takes a week yoru wrong and if they tell you itl take 2 they lie, i like the idea of havign a spare as i said.

and the thing about the duel core was for freak 67
