    most walmart workers couldnt be arsed to look at the returned item more then a glance.

    hell return it and say "it isnt even the right model!!!!! (act very indignant) "

    i know somebody who did that with a fx5200 that he got a wallyworld then burned out overclocking, got a 5700, took the 5200back(cleaned up no dust or such) and they didnt even blink, just gave him his refund and said im sorry and have a nice day ROFL

    Ashen's right. If you have a reciept, and the item isn't obviously tampered with, they'll just take it back. They don't care, it's a write off for them anyway.

    An X1950XT fan will fit on an X1950XTX, right?

    As far as I know. Not that the clerk would notice anyway.

    Crap, they took it off the website. I wonder if they have it in the store...? I'll have to find out tomorrow.

    Well, if that's the case, then it's really bad design then. I guess the early batches of these cards need to have some modification (heatsinks) added, this should be done by the manufacturers. :shadedshu

    UPS tried to deliver the Zalman when I wasn't home, so I found a note on the door. Plus, the X1950XT is on its way back to California. In its place is a 9250 PCI from walmart. Yeah, I'm going to be playing oblivion maxed out on this one...sure :(

    I take it that it is only a temporary measure then, until you get a new/replacement VC?

    Until the new X1950XT gets here, then it goes back.

    The case sure is quieter without the old dustbuster. The loudest thing is the flap that won't stop vibrating on the front of the armor.

    That's a blast from the past, can remember the old S3 cards, they were quite reasonable and affordable.

    It cost $73. I could get a heck of a lot better card for that. It's going back.

    I had a choice between that and an MX4000 for about the same price. I thought they'd at least have an x300 or something.

    My backup VC is an NVIDIA 6800. It's still quite reasonable to use as a main VC, so I'm quite happy with it.

    That's a better card than the majority of people have for their main card. That's a very good backup card. I wish I could magically push my AGP x800GTO@16pp into a PCI-E slot, then I'd be using it right now because it eats this 9200 for a tiny afternoon snack.

    It used to be my main VC until about a couple of months ago when I bought my x1950pro. It was quite difficult justifying it (to the wife, aka she that must be obeyed), but Christmas is the best time of year, thank you santa. :D

    I know one thing, zalman does a great job with the bottom of the heatsink. It has a mirror finish. I was expecting shiny, but this is pretty much a perfect mirror shine.

    Oh...spaghetti monster save me. Same issues with the 9200 that I had with the x1950XT...and now a memory module died. Even the same blue screen I got with whole infinite loop. So, evidently I sent back a perfectly good X1950XT and now have a dead memory stick sitting on my desk that may have been causing the problems....ARRGH!


    Oh yes, pretty copper base on that zalman.

    haha, i never assume its my videocard or any 1 part first, been a tech long enought to know that you cant assume such things without ending up regreting it more times then not :(

    u got 4gb, u can take out 2 and rma the dead "kit" if you have to send the whole kit.

    little tip i learned LONG ago, MEMTEST EVERY TIME YOU START HAVING CRASHES, test 5 looped for 20times is normaly a good way to see if the rams wonky, its normaly the test that shows flaws/problems first.

    sucks u sent back a good card :(
