MSI GTX580 Lightning Problem - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
Update: MSI contacted me to tell me that they do not have a replacement in-stock and offered cash for the market value of the card which I accepted. I won't go into specifics but the amount is enough to buy any new reference design gtx580 of any brand. Big thumbs up to MSI RMA support.

Good for you! Might I recommend the 580 Lightning? It's pretty good if it has that little switch on there. The Asus DCII is also very good for about $50 less than the Lightning, it shouldn't be more than about $20-30 more than the cheaper 580s you can find and it's certainly worth that little price increase.

So you were the one? I tried to buy one just recently and by the time I hit 'add to cart' it was 'out of stock'. Was this just last week?

Anyway, your two choices were send back to Newegg for full refund only with no replacement option or RMA to MSI with registration.

I'd agree kudos to MSI for accepting the RMA on 'open box' item. I know you got that card for a great price, worth the hassel. Even if you had to pay for the RMA shipping, your still way ahead.

Very nice! Glad it worked out for you in the end.

So will you be buying another lightning or waiting on the matrix?

Huh? Better not be referring to their Intel boards.
