My mom is mailing the card back to BFG today. When I was talking to the BFG tech support (well e-mail) She said they send either new or refurbished cards back. Are these refurbished cards reliable? I just don't feel like having to do this again in a few months.
Also, I was thinking the short lifetime of this might be due to high temperatures when I first got this PC. When I got it, I didn't know anything about temperature monitoring or keeping it cool (I've learned a lot this past year). Maybe the high temperatures early in it's life contributed to it dieing only being 1 year old. I was thinking of an aftermarket cooler. Only problem is that there is no space for it to draw cool air from, making it kinda useless. Only place I have is the extra openings on the back of the case for extra cards to go. Those are right above where the GPU slot is. I still don't think that would be enough space to draw cool air from though. Don't think mom will let me start cutting the case either
. Do you guys think it would be worth it getting one?
