    I've yet to actually start my new build. Is the noise really as bad as people make it out to be? I've heard comparisons to hairdryers.

    If indeed they did give some compensation, it'd probably come in the form of something like $10 store credit or something equally useless.

    Quick question about the molex to PCI-e adapters that come with the card. Do I have to plug in both male molex connecters on the PCI-e adapter? The obvious answer would seem to be yes, but I'm just making sure. I already have one PCI-e connecter that comes from my PSU, but I need to use one of...

    Exactly. NCIX clearly knows that this is an issue based on their messages in the forums, and yet there is nothing to warn potential buyers on the product page itself.

    Hopefully I get the same ( I ordered on the same day as you). I was able to get in contact with NCIX and have them reroute the package to my college address, but it seems FedEx still tried to deliver it to my parent's house. *bangs head*

    I go back to college tomorrow, now I have to wait for it to arrive, then my parents have to pay to ship it to me. This is absolute bullshit. Edit: It's just been picked up. Will get to my parents house on the 9th. I hope this card is worth all the trouble it's causing.

    There is no reason that it should be sitting at the border for over a week.

    just got my galaxy 8800GT

    I ordered mine the day after Christmas, and I got the tracking number on the 28th. I checked the tracking status regularly to see if it'd change, but it just stayed at "Package data transmitted to FedEx". I assumed this was just some glitch on FedEx's part, but when it didn't show up on the...

    Oblivion screen shots. **56K go make dinner**

    I'm not either, not by a long shot, but I've spent more time on Morrowind and Oblivion than any other game. Can't explain it...it's just "fun".

    Fuji Plus 19" LCD 12ms: 250 AMIR

    I bought one, and it came DOA. I'm expecting to get the replacement back in a couple of days.I'd watch the page a bit before buying. A couple of the times I looked the price had gone down to $240 and even $230 (after rebate).

    12ms 19" 600:1 $295.00

    Yeah, I tried all that stuff. No go. It seems to work except for the fact that there is no image. No menu or anything. At this point, I'm 99.9% it is broken. It's already back in the box. What is Newegg's policy on this kind of stuff? They better not expect me to pay for shipping because they...

    12ms 19" 600:1 $295.00

    I'm not getting any picture from mine. The power LED comes on and stays green, but I don't get any picture. I've tried VGA and DVI, neither work. Arrgggghhhh!

    Any problems with my planned upgrade?

    Thanks. What kind of performance difference is there between: http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16819103535 and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16819103484 ?
