Frame rates start out low and then get to 4 or 5 fps when heat starts to climb.

Well I was pretty sure your card was toast to start with. But now you've got all the info to tell EVGA. I've got a friend that works Tech Support but I think he works days. Ask for Jake, he knows Slay

Slay.. I knew it ws 2d.. I was double checking it'd kick ninto 3d.. as the 260 have had a downclocking issue... as they won't downclock.

Buy a cheapo GPU and keep it for backup for a rainy day.

One good thing about SLI i guess. If one dies I have a PC while I RMA the other. Yea, as said, just buy a cheapo Nvidia card and use it for PhysX or a backup.

Gotta love EVGA support! I am purchasing advanced RMA upon registry next time though.

If anyone has a gpu I could borrow I will pay shipping both ways.. about 1.5 weeks.

Man, for the cost of shipping, just buy an 8/9'series offv newegg that has free shipping and you'll have a backup for future.
