You know I TOTALLY hate what you just said, but, I know your right, & I agree. Recently, dmhnc "broke" his XFX 7950GT agp. He got a RMA for it & XFX gave him an XFX 8800GT Alpha Dog 512!

Hmm.. just maybe...

Sorry, but tis the truth. I bet they send you a 8800GT 256mb at the very least.

Thanks to everyone who helped me with my first GPU RMA. I got my agp XFX 7900GS replaced with a pci-e XFX 8800GS Alpha Dog for free. You guys were right. They didn't have anymore agps so they replaced it with pci-e. So now I am FINALLY building me a pci-e system. Whoo hoo. Now, I just have to figure out what parts to put in it ...

I messed with my heatsink on my 7900 AFTER it started screwing up, XFX still took it and sent my 8600. They have a double lifetime(two owners) warranty and modder friendly warranty, as long as you return it to them stock they have no problem with it.

Well I thought it was GREAT of XFX to replace our cards. I just can't seem to understand how they would replace an agp 7900GS with an 8800 series. ? I thought they would replace an agp 7900GS with a pci-e 7900GS. Also, I thought agp is slower, so how can an 8 series card be the "equivalent?" The only thing I'm thinking is they didn't have anymore 7 series cards ... I don't know.

Either way, it's a free upgrade!

Masterchief3k said his video card was replaced with an 8600GT & mine an 8800GS - which is faster? His system specs say his is a 512MB. Mine is a 384MB. They look really close. Doesn't memory size make a difference than anything else?

Cool! So is the 8800GS still a good card? This IS my first pci-e card & it's BRAND NEW. Should I experience pci-e with this card or sell it new & unopened & get an 8800GT or better? (JUST upgraded from agp )
