I enjoyed that one liner, Flat. Thank you! :D

I've just got word that it's out for delivery so I'm hoping to enjoy playing with my new toy within hours. I will most definitely share my experience of using the monitor with the Community. There are some very technical reviews out there on the internet but this will be a personal opinion. :angel:

I'm just hoping it's not DOA. I don't have a lot of faith in couriers nowadays.

Looking forward to hearing what you think of it once you've got Skyrim (etc.) appearing on it!
I welcome the day someone googles this thread and find this comment so incredibly quaint.

To the person who does read this in 10 years time. I hate you and your amazing technology, but at least I know what privacy is 8-)

Dozens of driver re-installs, reboots, a windows re-install, and hours of hardware fiddling later, I and my older brother have decided this card is definitely broken; even more so than the first, since the first could actually run things.
Time to RMA a second time. :evil: EVGA's quality control stinks.
A vague notion, disturbingly appealing, is floating around in my head, saying I should just sell the computer's parts and work at McDonald's for the rest of my life. Fairly peaceful.

Heck yeah. I did say I re-installed Windows, didn't I? And it still didn't work after that...
Every time I installed drivers, I first un-installed them with device manager.

I have fries with mine though... :angel:

Aye, you did... but I missed it. Only excuse: it was late here in England. Now... where's that cheeseburger?
