So did you hear back from VisionTek? I put in a warranty RMA and they replied asking for the invoice or receipt. Just emailed them all 3.

I got one of the Tigerdirect refurbs also, and I am not surprised to see that mine is in rough shape as well. Artifacts all over the place, and I can't even run Vantage. My buddy got a couple of them, and he said they both are giving him problems also. It would certainly seem that VisionTek dropped the ball in this deal. I haven't heard a single positive thing about these 4870x2 refurbs. Fingers crossed... hope they will accept my RMA.

I posted this in another 4870x2 thread, but thought I should share here as well.

Here is an example of what my refurb'd VisionTek 4870x2 does in 3DMark06...

This is what tech support said to me...

"As of right now, we are currently out of stock of this model card so the quickest turnaround to get this card replace will be going through Tigerdirect.



Thank you,

Visiontek Tech Support"

lol.

lol.
tell them you would like to rma the card with them and would like a replacement. They will have to send you a better card. that simple.

Technically you should wait till your 30 day window with tigerdirect has passed so that you cannot RMA it with tigerdirect.

Yes, in this case they'll have to give you a 5870/5970/6950/6970/6990.

Which are all, great deals for $99.

Actually, you would have to drop that 5870, unless it was the 5870x2 verision. So a 6950/6970/5970/5870x2 or 6990 would be an awesome upgrade for spending only $99
