Does anyone know anything about MSI. I talked to tech support and they think I need to RMA it. Well, great but I can't be without a card. Do you know if they will cross ship? I have not been able to talk to their customer support yet to be able to find out if they cross ship.

Most companies do not cross-ship. They need to verify that your board is bad before they send you a replacement. Talk to them and ask. About the only way to know for sure.

If they cross-ship they will make you pay a deposit on the card that would cover a new card if they do not see that the other card is in-fact bad. This way they do not get screwed on sending you a new unit and ending up with a good re-cert costing them money in the end.

For what I am doing (video editing with deadlines) I can't afford to be without a card for one second. I guess it would not be a bad idea to have another card on hand. I am looking at the XFX 6870 on the egg to actually replace this 460 as it now scares me to use nvidia. I have had good luck with my last cards which were amd. Not a speck of trouble. I bought it because I thought it might be better for video editing in Sony Vegas Pro 11 I use. Anyone care to comment on the plan of action? Thanks.

Does your software use CUDA?

I believe it does but it also benefits from something that the radeon has also.

Well, if it benefits from one or the other, make what you feel is the best decision.
