Obviously someone frucked up. Good for you man, maybe I should deal with XFX from now on.

I don't understand - did you send in the card for repair? or did you order it and you got the wrong one? Your English is a little broken, no offence.

Should I sell it, and get a 8800gt instead?

I sent in a 7950gx2 for replacement and they gave me this card instead.

Sorry for my broken english, lol. I'm just excited thats all.

That actually might be a good idea. Hopefully you still have it intact in the box?

I'd sell it to some noob who doesn't know any better for $350, get an 8800GT for as cheap as possible (cheapest was $229, but you won't see that anymore) and pocket the rest of the cash.

8800gts 640mb still a very good gaming card
