It took all of 2 Months to go through a vid card....

You know, I still have/use the Voodoo3 I got about 5 years ago...

Anyway, my new computer's video card went out last night. I'm bummed. Going through SWG withdrawals at present. I was told it would take days to process my 'order' then few more for shipping. I kindly asked to decrease the processing time and the rep said he'd see what he could do. Anyway, I'll let you know how it goes once I get the new card. It's an NVidia 5600 FX (IIRC, 256MB). Later.

That explains a lot. Any card you have to remove and re-seat is a lemon, or is it a lime?

That sucks, man, sorry. Pretty unusual for a video card to crap out during use (as opposed to during transfer); I've not heard of it since the VLB days. What brand was it?

Chris in experience withdrawal until Jeff returns

I'm sorry Chris. Can see you plodding through with meager resources. Maybe the rest of your party are as generous as Jeff.

BFG, I think makes it

I'll need to double check it when I yank it out of the case again...
