    If its using an old Nvidia TNT then it should *NOT run windows 7 period, XP would probably be slow. YOU hardly see anything that old paired with anything that isnt as old as it is.

    Well for a start it saves a mod coming deleting it, common curtsey i guess. Just seemed like you never knew about the delete feature, which might come in handy sometime.

    40 miles? Ashford and Canterbury are less than 20 miles from me; 40 miles is past Maidstone - Gillingham-ish. Bugger all money generated down here, unless you're Roger De Haan lol

    Damn Freedom, I thought XFX were the ones who allowed you to do that, as long as you tell them? Or have I got it very wrong?

    thats how its supposed to work. and thats what i read in forums. so I know people have contacted XFX before hand to keep them updated on whats their going to be done to their cards. and XFX have given them the go ahead to do it as they need to log it in their RMA database.

    but this is stupid. as i did mention that i have done the same thing countless numbers of times on older cards. and lets face it, If i was a real noob with no technical knowledge what so ever i probably wouldnt even known what the fuck MX-4 was or what thermal paste does or how beneficial thermal paste is to cooling.

    They were once on the side of the enthusiast. but this is taking it too far. I think they got sick of dealing with peoples RMA's. waiting for a response from SCAN on the matter.

    Just told them I used the card to browse the net and run a few benchmarks but i wasnt 100% satisfied with the product and wish to return them both. (well within my rights under the distance selling regulations) then I'll go to ebuyer and pick up some Sapphire or HiS cards. ebuyer have a better stocked selection of 6970s then SCAN for some reason.

    Oh well. Nevermind, The Returns dept manager is also a rep on Bit-tech. I'll go take my claim directly with him as i know Mr. Micheal W. here will stonewall me If i tried to persist with my claim.

    In the spirit of posting bargains (to cheer Freedom up if nothing else!) here is another one.

    Assassins Creed 2 for £2.50 digital download. UK only.

    Gotta have some good games for all that kickass hardware, right?

    Bunch of bar stewards! I still got like a year and a half warranty before I can change the paste on my 5770. Don't want to do it yet because the fan's been (quietly) buzzing for about a year.

    My 5770 @ 960/1440 doesn't go over 65 deg.c (with my extra heatsinks all over the card) - I'm addicted to low temps. I won't let any componenet in my rig go over 65. (Gammy un-unlockable) CPU seems to be convinced it's only 29 deg.c!! It won't move even after a few hours of gaming!!

    Shame there's no Vapor-X/Toxic version of the 6970 - the Vapor-X's run nice and cool generaly - would you consider one of them?

    If the price was right i would. usually cards with Vapor X or Toxic coolers charge a small price premium.

    these 6970s are supposed to have Vapor chamber cooling anyway but that still doesnt stop them from hitting 81'c in BC2.

    Ive got 3 bloody years to wait for warranty to end before i can start fiddling with the card. if SCAN wont accept them back then I'll try to get rid of them along with my 5850s and go with a sapphire card instead

    Yea the Vapor's are a little bit more expensive AFAIK. I would have had one off you, but I need an nvidia card for my vid editing rig. Gonna be the first nvidia card I've actually bought for myself :laugh:
    You might have to ebay them to get a proper price, I can't see them going for top dollar on here.

    yeah, Im gonna need to throw the 2 5850s up on Ebay too i thinks. not too much traffic here.

    I could put them up on gumtree too and see if i can get anyone local to take them off me. but all im gonna get is a bunch of polish people calling me up and trying to lowball me.

    Pffft I've had decent stuff up on gumtree for aaaages and didn't even get a sniff of interest. It's crap on there man, less traffic than here :laugh:
    I just bought a videocamera off the bay - I was supposed to buying a broken one to fix my little brother's, but ended up buying a semi-broken one :p I know what's wrong with this one so easy fix!!

    The seller sold it to me straight instead of all the bidding crap, I'm just waiting for her to take down the listing now.
