Default :( RMA time

i RMAd my X800GTO today.

after loading the drivers in bootup, the fan was cutting right down in speed, to about a third of its usual, even with it set at 100%. This suddenly happened when i was playing CSS, and it artifacted. It was overheating badly becuase of the lack of fan speed. it did it in another computer, and with other drivers.

I am now on the old Intel Integrated... I had a small LAN party planned at my house on the 13th, and I don't think I will have a card by then.

I am going to try and get the company to provide a refund rather than a replacement, as i cant stand that ASUS rubbish drivers anymore, and that Powercolor X1800GTO is looking amazing for the price...

anyway, just to say that really. I am quite annoyed, as I just finished my exams, and was looking forward to long days of gaming etc, and now this has happened...

OK, they are sending me this instead, as my model of X800GTO is discontinued.


doesnt look too bad. i hope it performs as well as the GTO did...
