Mines all fine, though that sounds like my buddies GTX280. Does the same thing.

I only have issues booting if I pull the power cord from my PC. If I switch off the PSU though, it boots up fine. And it's always booted fine from a normal shutdown and without killing the power.

I've been immensly happy with my Vapor-X 4890. It's nearly silent at load, has native HDMI with audio (great to hook it up the the HDTV for gaming) and stays really cool in my system. I'd second going with the 1GB card to save money, unless you're compensating for a little underpowered CPU (though if you're in an i7 with Saph 4890, you'll run everything on 'very high' :)

I guess it's just luck whether i get a card that does this or not.

Yep, that's what i liked about it, it's silent and i'm gonna connect it to my HDTV.
If i had found a 1GB Card, i would have gotten it no doubt, but sadly, there isn't any where i live.
And i'll be running an i5 so the performance should be very good as well.

Thank you.
