XFX had a patch of bad cards on the 4000 series. Not so much in the 5000 series. They are doing great in the 6000 series though.

Lulz.

My brain was on the verge of exploding.

(Was a full time Body man, Frame technician and painter for years.)

To the OP:

If you bought it from a brick and mortar store, just take it back and get a refund. Sounds like it was an RMA'd card to begin with.

**** happens. Now if this was a reoccurring problem it would make sense to be angry but every company has a bad product. And please, for the love of my eyes, learn how to use periods. No one enjoys reading a paragraph long run-on sentence.
