Default RMA GTX280

GTX280 has to be RMA'd - it has the same pink screen of death seen in another thread. I started getting this within a couple weeks of getting the card and thought maybe it was just a driver problem. Then I read the other thread and realized the pic they posted is exactly what my card is doing.

As I am sitting here in frustration I have just realized I have NEVER purchased an EVGA product in the last 3 years (nor have I got an RMA replacement) that I didn't have to RMA at least once (a couple of times with a mobo - and it should have gone back a third time the day I received it). I had a mobo die and it took 4GB of RAM with it so there is another couple hundred thrown away. Add that to the $30 - $40 shipping every few months plus the waiting and waiting for RMA without my gamer running is a huge waste!!!

I have two old P4P800's and a 9600XT that are still running strong and I have never had a problem with them. It's embarrassing when I have to fire up the old P4 because my "EVGA" rig is down.

What is going on with EVGA quality??? Driver quality is also starting to hit the dirt but that is more of an Nvidia thing.

Sorry for the rant but I am getting frustrated with EVGA and RMA RMA RMA RMA RMA RMA RMA RMA RMA RMA RMA
