Default XFX RMA

When I switch back to my XFX GTX 260 Black Edition when I rma'd my 480, I noticed a lot screen flickering and artifacts. When I got my 480 back I just forgot about it. Then I let my friend borrow it when he rma'd his card and he was experiencing the same issue I was having.

Now I'm thinking of sending the card to XFX. I'm pretty sure xfx doesn't have any 260 black edition.

What do you guys think if they replace the card they will give me back?

seeing as they do not sell Nvidia cards then I would think you would be getting an AMD card. I have no idea what they will give you though. Post back here once you know.

you'll probably get a 6870/6950 unless they still stock nvidia cards.

No I'd say he'll get a 6850 at best.
In fact they might even claim a 5770 is closest in performance and send one of those.

I would love to get a 6870 or 6950, but I highly doubt that. I was thinking I'd either get a 5770 or 6770. We'll see though.

It goes by what he paid for the card, not what its performance is similar to.
