My System Specs

Default GTX 280

At last! i got my GTX 280 back and started folding again a few hours ago.

It was gone for repairs for 9 weeks; they couldn't repair it and i got a new one (hope this one will last longer than 3 months).

I'll be lucky this time to get in the Top 20 Producers as, in the meantime, lots of people got to update their equipment.

9 weeks? Good god, I'd freak if I didn't get my stuff back quick, less shipping times it shouldn't take more than a week for them to send a new one.

Was it shipped from the US? The last RMA'ed 280 took 8 weeks for me...

Yikes!! Thats why I buy EVGA doesn't usually take more than 10 business days or 2 weeks. At least you got the card back in the end, just keep it nice and cool while folding and it should last nice and long.

I don't know because this is one of the pieces of equipment that was bought by the store owner;
I bought some and he bought the rest.

I rma'ed 2 280s prior to that last one, and a 9800GTX which all 3 took less than a week back-and-forth. The depot is actually 20 minutes away... but they had no more of the 280s in stock for the last one, and they needed to ship them first from Illinois.
