I was wanting to make sure they still worked, didn't see where you posted that the machine worked fully.

Strange that it would land on 9.0.... Is it possible your Abit motherboard is scaning the bios on the GPU and is seeing that the GPU bios had a bad flash?

I kinda want to think the GPU had an improper flash done to its firmware....

Would a local shop be willing to hook the GPU up in one of the tech pcs they use, just to see if they have any luck?

I would probably tell the seller that I want a refund on that card if I was you.
