need an opinion
had to rma : Gainward GF4-4200 8x 128 mb
golden sample (3.6ns ram)
was told if they dont have an exact repl. they
would offer a "comparable" card
what do you think would be fair ???
5700 series , 9600 series ??

9600XT>9600pro>5700Ultra, if they offer anything lower, don't take it. Screw non-pro/non-ultra.

Normally they're replace it with a card of equal/greater value. Value is based on RETAIL PRICE, not performance, so that means the 5200/5200U/etc. Performance doesn't matter in their scheme.

Oh Crash, how could you say such words. They are true, but so aweful to hear.


I'd still insist on equal or better performance. Fight it out with them as best you can.

its from newegg , they're good about this stuff
yes your right about value part , but , if they offer
some 5200 / 9200 etc.
I'd have to say no
what it is , is ,
3 yr warranty
1st year send back to store
year 2-3 send back to manufacturer
may have to send back to Gainward
