Try to get the receipt to RMA it. If you can't RMA this card, then try your capacitor idea (I can't give advice, but I remember reading some stuff about capacitor switching on XS), And if you fail, or if it doesn't work.... you can get an 8800gs for $62 AMIR from time to time..Maybe better, just have him look around for deals

Registered the card....no receipt....going to wait a couple of weeks before calling it in. lol, don't know if it will make a difference but didn't want to register tuesday and then call in thursday for a claim.

they will let you RMA without a reciept. just email tech support/RMA staff. tell them the deal, they are very good about RMAing their products if they are defective IN ANY WAY.

I'm hoping...and considering I go through a lot of product I'd think they'd like to keep me happy on a $30ish card. We shall see, I'll get back with the result.

Part of me wants them to refuse so I can start ripping it apart to try and fix it myself :P
