asus rma

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Ok I rma'd my 5970 about a month ago and asus doesn't have any and cant repair my card. First they offered a 5870, I responded I would take a 6990. They then offered 2 5870's and said they dont know when the 6990's will be released. I told them I would take an ares 5970, finally they offered a single 6950. I already have a waterblock for a 5970 that I was running trifire with a 5870. I could run 3 5870's but would have to purchase 2 more blocks.
What do you guys think, should I wait it out or accept one of their offers?

How much do 5870's go for used? If it is greater than the value, sell em and profit.
Or else ask for a gift receipt/something to the difference in msrp value.

2x 5870's and sell them dude
Get like £200 minmum I'd say for them each so that's £400 maybe more.
(Sold a used 5850 for £190)

So you were unreasonable.

Take the two 5870's if that offer still stands, you can't request an item that isn't released, that's common sense.

And do you really think Asus in their right mind would give you an Ares?

No way I would take a 6950. The 5870's will probably be the non-ref cards that are not really in demand.

Ask for a GTX580. That would be a fair trade IMO.

I forgot to mention I spoke with asus technical support in December and the tech said the 6990 would be released in January and they may very well agree to a swap. Also I've seen other posts where people in my situation were offered substantial upgrades. As far as the ares goes I figured that was closer to my card than their original offer, so if they had the cahones to offer me 1 5870 in exchange why not throw that out there.
I guess I'll wait and see if they can find another 5970 and if not I'll go for 2 5870's.

Aren't all asus 5870's reference?

I'll run that by them too, but I would like to run trifire if possible

No, they went to their V2 a while back. They may still have ref eyefinity 6 cards.

I can find the link on this site about the v2, people were luke warm about it.

Here is a review about the V2 card. I have not read it, let us know what you think.
