    got the GPU today, all appears well so far.

    havent tested 3D, but it works in 2D and the fans all good... testing the rest now (but gotta go to work soon)

    UPDATE:

    In case anyone is curious, this is the nuts and bolts of what XFX told me and what I mentioned to quasarsky.

    1) All cards need to have the warranty activated 30 days after purchase to receive the double lifetime warranty.
    2) Seeing that I said I never registered the cards, as it says in my little FS "blurb"...the double lifetime warranty doesn't apply to the cards.

    Now y'all know why I don't want to deal with warranty crap!

    Whoa, dude! The last pictures you sent me were just filled with wires. I had no idea you were going eyefinity. I'm still yet to run an eyefinity setup. Keep me in the loop on how that goes. Kinda jealous I haven't done that yet.

    @roast - Did you get the card yet? I was curious if it got through customs already. I'm really curious how long it takes to get to the land of the Irish. :pimp:

    Nothing yet, But I wouldn't be surprised if it arrived at home while I'm at work today. If its not today, it will probably be tomorrow. Customs are lax here. ;)
