honestly I'm huge nvidia fan but if they send me a 6950 I will be extremely happy. If they did send me a 6950 it would probably be the 1 gb version.

Since when? I thought it was an equally or better performing card that they would replace his with.

-"If XFX or its authorized representative is not able to repair the product, we will replace it with a comparable product that is new or refurbished."

As long as the card is at least equal or better then the 260 then I'll be happy.

Wow, just got the 6850 in today and I'm very disappointed with this thing. Put it in just to test it and the micro stutters are outrageous. While playing black ops it felt like I was lagging the whole time but it was between 60-90 FPS. Tried booting up BFBC2, card could barely handle that game.
