Lots of it this week. My video card went on my main computer and my dvd rom and hard drive went on my other dell 8400 computer. All in one week.

A capacitor blew on the xfx 8600gt video card I have,I heard it pop. Posted Image

It has a lifetime warranty but I did not register it within 30 days so xfx won't fix it. I replaced it with a xfx 5870 xxx edition. The new video card was on the way before the old one went.

I might see if I can order new capacitors for the 8600gt and fix it for my dell to replace the x300 that's in it.

I am not disappointed,it,s a good excuse to buy new toys. piratesanta

The 5870 is great, very happy with it. For benchmarks 3Dmark06 21543 and for 3Dmark vantage P17255. I made sure I registered it within 30 days too.
