All my cards have been XFX (for the past 6 years), I love those guys

EDIT: So I called NCIX, they told me to bring in the card to the store, they will replace it right away, if they don't have it in stock they will order one in for me.
Awesome news! Their customer service is great. JW Is it one of those red PCB reference 7970's?

Yes that exact same one, I'm thinking I'm going to swap it for the XFX. What do you think?

Man do I have bad luck... so I exchanged the MSI for the XFX. I get home and I find my power supply does not have the 8 + 6 pin for PCI-E connector lol.

Seriously.

I have an OCZ 600W, it's a bit old (maybe 4-5 years?)

Great links! Thanks for that.

And my luck strikes again, I was playing COD and the computer shuts down. Now it won't turn back on, I'm REALLY hoping nothing was damaged, I'm REALLY hoping it was the PSU. Oh man

This looks like a better deal: Buy the XFX Pro Series XXX Ed ATX Semi-Modular 850W PSU at TigerDirect.ca

Thoughts?
