RMA it and get a GT220/GT240.

Do not get an aftermarket fan. That is a big waste of time and money to deal with that. Just send it in to XFX.

Its not going to cost your much to ship it. An aftermarket cooler will cost way more than shipping it to XFX.

From experience with mom computers. They will never understand the time you put in to making them work like an OCN rig. They just want a working computer. IF she can get by without a card for a week, send it in.

Send it back to XFX if it is still covered. Even if they send you a 7900GT it would still be a nice little upgrade.

Actually that would suck. Her PSU is garbage and the extra heat output would be terrible for that little CM case. I'd like a very low end card please .

Don't worry about that, I threw in an old 8600GTS in the meanwhile. She was freaking out when I told her the graphics card was on its way out. "But I need to use my computer!!!"

Oi, my mom is the same way. She almost falls apart if she can't email her friends. She was the one who taught me how to use a computer 20 years ago so I know she has it in her to figure a lot of the software hiccups out for herself. Thank the lord she has a laptop now. I built a computer for her prior to that and it was more trouble than it was worth.

Glad you are sending the card out. I hope all goes well and maybe you will get it upgraded for free.

Yeah, I built her a nice solid rig in 07. C2D 2.66, 2GB DDR2, ASUS P5K deluxe two redundant 500GB WD but its not good enough or as pretty as a mac.

Never building her a PC again.
