Leadtek still the best manufacturer imo. You know in Britain you can't get an eVGA card anywhere, but from the, literally tens and tens of web review pages ive seen, Leadtek still is above eVGA.

Ya Leadtek is up there right next to eVGA, yours must have been damaged during shipping or some kind of static.

so, umm, err yeah

There are in order of increasing severity: lies, darn lies, statistics, and computer benchmarks. - diskinfo man page

Anti-static wristbands are simple, strap it on so the metal part touches your wrist, and put the other end on something metallic like tie it to your PSU (don't worry it's safe to do so, but if you're paranoid you could always tie to to a metallic doorknob, make sure it wasn't painted thuroughly as I'm not sure how conductive the paint would be if it even was). Also, if you're a cheap bugger like me, and you have lots of copper wire? you can make a home made anti-static wrist strap by tying some around your wrist (not too tight your your skin will get marks) and tie the other end to psu or someother conductive metal. Handy stuff that copper wire eh? lol.

Now remember, the copper wire will be a little more bulky and uncomfortable, so if it's too much just buy an AS wrist strap, and leave me tied to mine.

And yes, as much as we would all like it to be so, electornics aren't fail-proof. Odds are you got the 1 in maybe 1,000-10,000 (just ballparking numbers hea) of leadtek vidcards that died.
Later-A-Much, and LONG LIVE THE D!
