I little late posting this as I received my rma about a month ago.
I could'nt figure out the reason the video card stopped working until i put the
fixed one in. These newer video cards today are so long in length they acually dont fit right in the agp slots, i had to put a quarter and a 8th" piece of paper under the screw hole where the card connects to the case to level this card out so there was no accidental short circuiting going on if i accidentally hit or pulled on the cord going to the monitor.
Oh Just a plug, I built my business with dual 242 Opterons:
nitpickit.com is the website I built using the Opteron technology.Free Advertising
' ">http://www.nitpickit.com is the theme of the website.
This is a seriously technical website using several programming languages, so I needed a true workhorse to help me get the job done. I found that in an Opteron system.
The Opterons and 1gig mem per cpu handled huge database group edits using replace function in windows it was like watching the old space invaders game as it was handleing the data chunk by chunk and actually getting a little faster as it neared the end Although the mp system I have is wonderful I think the upgrade to the opterons was a good idea.
