After putting up with my video card artifacting in games unless i ran them on low at 800x600 (in fact, it still would look like this at times)
I finally decided send my video card back to EVGA under their awesome lifetime warranty. After waiting for a week and missing out on FNF TF2 (or at best crying while playing it on my familes crappy computer) I finally get the package with my new video card today. however, Once I opened it, I noticed that I didn't get a 7900GT KO (the card that i had sent in). Instead, they gave me a brand new 8800GTS 320mb card! Talk about awesome. now i can rape face in COd4 and TF2 with the graphics cranked up all the way :).
