my EVGA 8800GTS640 kicked the bucket...
Yup the card died on me. It was in my backup rig. The card died during a game of L4D2...now it's artifacting from the BIOS screen and on...It was registered on the EVGA site, so I initiated an RMA. My uploaded invoiced should be accepted as proof of purchase and the RMA will go through.
Now...as of today, which card SHOULD I expect in return??? I know it could be different things going from:
-the same card, but fixed;
-another 8800GTS640 that they had laying around;
-a 8800GT or 9800GT single slotter;
-a 8800GTS 512...
What are they sending these days?
i think there was another thread and dude got the same exact card, but baked? seems they might try that first? or maybe its just a rumour and only individuals are baking the cards since long term = nono, from what i read.
I sure HOPE they don't bake it and send it back. That would be an atrocious RMA.
I can't think of EVGA baking cards tho. Too far fetched.
I'll keep you folks updated for sure.
cool, but ima gonna start a bet,usually i win these things :)
btw, you a repeat customer with them? that could change things.
9800 GTX is possible, GTX 260 if they are short stocked.
But you shouldn't 'hope' for this since this is very unpredictable.
I would bet you get a GTS 250
I take whatever I get!
A GTS250 would make me happy.
A GTX260 I 'm not hoping for...too much to ask
I sent my card in...can't wait to see what they'll send back.
Meanwhile I found this on the EVGA forum, for your info:
Some people get lucky and get a much better card. Most just either get their old card back fixed or one similar in performance.
8800ultra=gtx 260 superclocked!....well for me anyways after 2 rma's
