    I wouldn't know. You need to contact where you bought it from.

    That would depend on who or where you got it from... You would be better off asking them.

    Edit: @erocker... You beat me to it. :)

    My last dealings with MSI product left me feeling skeptical about their CS. I bought a 660 Ti PE OC that apparently had some odd compat quirk with my display. It wouldn't recognize my Panasonic 32" HDTV as HDCP capable, even though it is, and I got BSOD when switching between TV and PC inputs. They admitted in a Newgg product comment that it may have been defective, yet implied my system must be messed up.

    Strange that the GTS 250 I had prior and the 7970 I have now have no such problems. Messed up system, nope. Messed up MSI CS. On the phone they never offered to RMA it and it took several calls because I kept getting different opinions from each tech. Furthermore I had to reiterate the symptoms every call because they never generated a support ticket, and that's without any toll free line to call on.

    A lot of people talk crap about ASUS support lately, but MSI have really slipped a lot IMO.

    Before we go all RMA it...

    Coil whine, though it can certainly be annoying is normal(ish). Some cards it does it, most, not. When you say blurry, I assume you installed the drivers and set to your monitors native resolution. Your first post had almost literally nothing to go on... :confused:

    are you, by any chance, shuffling around your house with wool socks on while holding your video cards?
