Don't look at it like a problem, it's an opportunity to get a decent video
card. 5900 would be a good choice.

Don't be sorry.
Now you have a good reason to replace it with a better one ;-)

Shouldn't it have a 12 month warranty? That seems to be standard around here

Ohoh

What was the exact card/manufacturer ?

And is it the FX5200 or FX5200 ultra ?

And did it have a fan yes or no :) ?

Bye,

While the FX5200 may be pathetically slow, video cards don't just burn
themselves out. I'd watch for other components (could be faulty motherboard
or power supply).
