    I've already packed it up; the process was quite quick and painless. Only needed to send 2 emails.

    I'm just wondering why they responded when the closing business hours even listed in the email itself was hours before.

    because their times are set differently than ours so it applies to their time zone

    But they have the time zone listed next to the hours as PST?

    RMAs normally dont give you credit back, unless if you return the cards to the retailer.

    I wish I could get credit back.
    I am quite busy this time of year, and being without the card the last few days, I've found that I'm fine with playing only various Source games with an HD 5450 at low settings 720p and an HD 6770 is available if I have growing urges.
    Would anyone here be interested in a card straight from RMA once I receive it, before I head off to eBay.

    Well, they received the package yesterday, and are sending the replacement out tomorrow.
    Considering I live slightly greater than half an hour away from Althon Micro, I can expect to receive it before the week's end. :D
    Would $215 be a fair price for this card?
