  1. I just got my replacement card and its worse than the first one. When the computer first boots up there are black squares all over the screen and then at the Windows desktop there are large horizontal lines. It does this one 2 different computers with VIA and nForce2 boards.

    I think they are absolutly horrible, I never buy from them.

    They used to sell underclocked videocards!!!

    My dad had a GF2 MX400 that was PowerColor and the fan stopped and it over heated.

    Im hoping that was just a fluke. I just tried the Omega Softmod and it took. Now I have a 9800 Pro with no artifacts. Just got 5323 on 3Dmark. Got 3000 before the mod and 1600 with the Radeon 8500. Hopefully Im Doom worthy now.
