That sucks.
But those cards can be problematic, the EVGA ones all died off when they were still young.
No sir I don't like it!

What about the quadro counterpart, the FX 3000 - is it better quality wise or the same?

I just hope my fx 5950 ultra doesn't arrive dead. It should arrive later this week or early next week. 40 euros was a decent price if it works... If most FX cards are bad quality like that, I don't think I will have good chances with it.
